The True Benefit of Medical Travel to The faultily Insured, the Self Insured, and the Uninsured

As I sit in the beautiful and modern facility of Hospital Clinica Biblica I'm struck by what a fantastic resource we have here in Costa Rica. I know by this time that many have heard that Costa Rica features JCI commissioned infirmaries but the actuality doesn't strike the patient till they actually arrive. I spent a year nursing my sister at one of the best surgeries in the North East and I will say unequivocably that the difference between the 2 is akin to the service one receives in your local mom and pop store vs what one could expect in an automatic factory.

Take todays example my customer a girl from Georgia required an emergency hysterectomy due to cancer. So naturally the insurance company to which she has been paying into for years found some clause or another and began intimating that she was not covered. Now when emergency surgery is needed the last thing you want is to be fighting with the uncertainty of an 80 thousand buck broke expense. Even with the insurance coverage she posessed she was having a look at twenty fife thousand greenbacks broke costs.

Enter Health Check Costa Rica, after finding our web site designed to help patients with their medical travel plans I talked with the patient about her concerns of which she had many. Contemplating critical surgery in another country is a discouraging concept at best, . This is where the role of facilitator becomes instrumental in communicating the true qualty and realities of Medical Travel to Costa Rica. So we introduced the patient to one or two options and finally arranged for a 3 way tele-conference with the surgeon. Well once again thank heavens for the facilitator, whle the doctor is a famous surgeon lets just say that between the language barrier and a slightly less than effusive telephone manner we managed to get all the patients questions answered to her satisfaction.

Now as the patient arrives here's where the variances between this infirmary and its Northern US opposite numbers really struck me. This is not a factory, Clinica Biblica has a warm atmosphere and it's full of helpful trained staff the pure number of which shocked even me. There were friendly people available to servce the patients each need from drivers to the coordinator and even the Director of world services was available to welcome and comfort the patient. I haven't seen anything like it, and I guarantee that most individuals coming here will be very pleasantly surprised at the pro atmosphere, the modernity of the facility and most importantly the warm and personal attention that comes so naturally to Pro Costa Ricans.

As a footnote please know the same surgery with a globally famous physician including 10 days of recovery stay for her and her hubby worked out to under Eleven Thousand bucks, excluding airline ticket.
