Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 01, 2011
Described as “the handbook for the American medical insurance refugee”, Traveling 4 Health & Retirement has released the only definitive guide by 12 medical tourism experts who explain how to safely access great quality medical care at 30 cents on the dollar, OUTSIDE as well as WITHIN the USA.
"How To Plan a Successful Medical Tourism Trip" is the brainchild of Ilene Little, a pioneering blog writer for the medical tourism and retirement industries. Buy the book in paperback or on Kindle, and get help from this interactive, consumer guide.
“A medical insurance refugee is a person who cannot afford the REAL cost of health insurance and health care in their local community” says Little.
“Our audience is the 50 something generation at the tail end of the baby boomer group. This publication is of critical importance to people in the pre-Medicare eligibility decade of their life, as that is the time when the cumulative effects of chronic health conditions require costly medical intervention” says Little.
“This 50 something generation has been disproportionately affected by the economic crisis of the last four years. We hear from many people who were restructured out of work, lost their group medical insurance and simply cannot afford the cost of individual health insurance policies.
This generation has seen their savings and net worth depleted due to prolonged unemployment or underemployment and substantially decreased property values.
These are medical insurance refugees in desperate need of practical solutions whose inability to afford meaningful insurance, if at all, drives them to consider treatment abroad at significant cost savings.
“How to Plan A Successful Medical Tourism Trip” is a survival guide for medical insurance refugees. It provides practical tips for planning and managing medical treatment out of the country at savings of up to 70% compared to the same in the USA,” adds Little.
The book is the culmination of four years of research, and countless interviews with patients and 12 leading subject experts.
The interactive format reflects the significance of the Internet as the great equalizer of access to information. “The Internet is in many ways, the world’s largest doctor’s waiting room”, concludes Ms. Little.
