The cost of medical treatment takes into consideration a number of different aspects including the cost of the drugs, treatment and wages of the doctor.

It has been reported in Expat Forum that medical procedures can vary considerably according to the country in which they are undertaken, for example an appendectomy in the United Arab Emirates may cost £8,000 whilst the same procedure in the USA could set a patient back at least £25,000. The cost of medical treatment takes into consideration a number of different aspects including the cost of the drugs, treatment and wages of the doctor or medical professional carrying out the task.

Performing international removals since 1959, the team at Interdean are dedicated to providing their audience with information and advice on all areas of the relocation process. As such the specialists were naturally concerned by the recent news and a representative has offered their advice on finding the right medical insurance.

“When settling into a new country, your list of things to do can seem never-ending, and so tasks such as securing new employment and finding new schools can take priority over seeking medical insurance, however failure to do so could wipe out years’ worth of savings. International medical insurance premiums vary tremendously so it makes sense to look around before you reach a decision. Use expat forums for reviews from different companies and don’t be afraid to speak to a few different providers before making a payment.”
