US insurance companies are very slowly beginning to use--and even very actively encourage--people who need some types of expensive (but fairly routine) surgery to get it done overseas. Insurance company covers everything--plane fare, visas, medical care, whatever--and savings of $100+k/patient are readily available
If someone did a search, they'd find my post on this board YEARS ago talking about how I made a small investment overseas in a business that caters to what I felt would be growing medical tourism.
So um yeah, I'm well aware of medical tourism hence my investment is very very close to an Apollo hospital facility.
And the income doesn't get taxed by Obama.
If you ever need accomodations in a few years when you go abroad for health care let me know I'll give you the PA discount.
