Lake Geneva, WI (PRWEB) July 27, 2010
Costa Rican Medical Care (CRMC), a medical tourism facilitator specializing in medical and dental procedures performed exclusively in Costa Rica, has applied for membership with PROMED, the Council for the International Promotion of Costa Rica Medicine. PROMED, a private not-for-profit organization, coordinates the quality control and international promotion efforts of medical providers and the government. Its goal is to ensure the quality of services provided by the private health industry in Costa Rica as it becomes a major center for global medicine and medical tourism.
“Over the past two years, we have worked with Minister of Tourism Carlos Ricardo Benavides and Executive Director of PROMED Massimo Manzi to ensure our program works according to the standards set by PROMED,” said Tim Morales, president of CRMC. “We feel that by joining PROMED, we are supporting an organization that is looking out for the best interests of the patients who come to Costa Rica and ensuring that the providers we work with are up to the highest standards of accreditation set by the organization.”
“We look forward to working with the membership and board of PROMED to help Costa Rica continue to grow their medical tourism market in a safe and effective way. Last month, we invited PROMED director Massimo Manzi to attend our booth at the National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU) Annual Convention in Chicago. He was able to meet many of the Health Underwriters and members of their associated firms currently working with Costa Rican Medical Care who will provide medical tourism as a cost-saving option for their clients. Since the enactment of the health reform legislation in the U.S. focused on expanding insurance coverage rather than lowering health care costs, many more employers as well as individuals will need to consider a medical tourism option in their health plans. As the lines for treatment form in the U.S. in the coming years, Costa Rican Medical Care is the one option that makes the most sense and can help bring down costs immediately.”
Health care costs in the United States have exploded in the last few years, but the same procedures are very affordable in Costa Rica. Many people and/or employers who have to pay out-of-pocket do not realize they have other options that can keep them healthy and save them money at the same time. Working with the three JCI-accredited private hospitals, physicians, plastic surgeons and dental clinics in Costa Rica, Costa Rican Medical Care can help people save up to 70% on most medical care procedures.
