Medical Tourism – A Growing Trend

A Dallas Friend of Mine Shared This With Me:

John C. Goodman Health Alert
I have glimpsed at the future of U.S. health care and I am pleasantly surprised. Instead of
continuing to rise at twice the rate of growth of income, health care spending will slow
dramatically. Future prices will actually be lower than they are today. Providers will
bundle their services into easily-understood packages with a single fee. They will compete
against each other on price and quality and the data will be transparent. Health care will
be provided in a free, competitive marketplace. Third-party insurance will be relied upon
only for rare, very expensive events. Medical malpractice suits will be virtually unknown.

There is only one catch. All this will happen outside the United States.
