Lake Geneva, WI (PRWEB) October 5, 2010
With many companies researching different options to keep their healthcare expenses down this fall, adding a medical tourism option should be first on the list.
Costa Rican Medical Care offers a complete medical tourism option for companies at no cost to the company or their employees. The savings on medical and dental procedures average 30% - 70% over U.S. prices, providing an instant ROI for those covered under either a consumer directed health plan or under a self-funded insurance plan. Our team can contact your insurance company to determine if a procedure will be covered and if it is not find out why not. It only makes sense for an insurance company to cover procedures by licensed foreign doctors and accredited hospitals.
Health Savings Accounts are particularly adaptable to a medical tourism option since travel and accommodations are qualified expenses as defined by the Treasury Department. Let Costa Rican Medical Care explain how to use your HSA/Health Savings Account dollars using our medical tourism option. For example, if your doctor orders a Colonoscopy it could cost $5000 or more in may areas of the country and wipe out your HSA, but by using Costa Rican Medical Care you would received a complete physical which includes lab work, imaging diagnosis, complete colonoscopy, cardiac stress test, air fare and hotel for around half the cost.
When considering a medical tourism option there are a number of factors to consider. Is the country stable? How long is the travel time? How much does it cost to get there? Who is picking you up once you get there? Are the providers accredited? Using medical tourism only makes sense if the numbers work and the total savings are there.
If you are an health agent, TPA, employee benefits advisor, employer or just an individual trying to save on healthcare, contact Costa Rican Medical Care at 262-348-1300 and see how easy adding a medical tourism option can be.
