This Medical (Health) Tourism Feasibility Study involves a self-insured

company located in the United States and interested in the concept of Medical

(Health) Tourism. The company has approximately 10,000 total covered

healthcare participants, and an estimated 2,000 of those participants

live outside the United States. The company’s healthcare costs are

rising rapidly and the Employee Benefits Director wants to create

various healthcare alternatives for their employees to reduce or maintain

out-of-pocket healthcare expenses; but is finding little success looking

The company is interested in maintaining quality healthcare options

while reducing the overall cost of healthcare and is open to the possibility

of Virtual (e.g.,Tele-radiology) and/or Physical (Traveling to lower cost

US states or international countries) Medical (Health) Tourism.
