MEDICAL TOURISM - FAQ
  • What is Medical Tourism? Medical Tourism is a new concept used to represent obtaining medical or surgical services while traveling or vacationing in another country.
  • What are the types of medical procedures that tourists usually seek in India? There are a lot of different medical/surgical options for medical tourists. Primarily, medical tourists get elective procedures such as cosmetic surgery, hip and knee replacements, dental procedures, infertility treatments; any procedure that is usually not covered by insurance or has a long waiting time in their home country.
  • What is the cost savings compared to the costs in my country? The potential cost savings for medical tourists are huge and as a result are one of the more important factors in seeking treatment in India. It is important to note that the cost for each individual will vary depending on their need and requirements. Usually, an elective procedure such as a knee replacement would cost on average of $30,000 in the US. Whereas getting that same procedure done using similar quality parts in India would cost 40 - 60% less than the cost in the US, including the hospital stay, all procedure and physicians costs and transportation to and from India. The costs compared to UK are similarly lower by about 40 - 60%. This is mainly possible because of favorable currency exchange rates.
  • Are these costs savings due to lower standards of medicine in India? Absolutely not, the Indian medical standards match up to the highly prescribed international standards. The lower costs are due to favorable currency conversion rates and lower costs of operating in India.
  • How do I make payments and how is it handled? Medicalonline is not the medical provider and cannot accept payment for your medical expenses. You will be required to make payment per hospital policy. Usually, this involves paying a deposit prior to undergoing any diagnostic tests and/or procedures. A final bill will be presented to you prior to discharge from the hospital. The travel and accommodation charges will be collected as per Medicalonline rules and regulations.
