Why Medical Tourism Is Drawing Patients, Even in a Pandemic

The founder & Director of the CMTR in the New York Times again (2nd time in the last 6 months) discussing outbound #MedicalTourism from the US & UK to Mexico & Turkey:
“We are seeing a pent-up demand for medical tourism during the pandemic, particularly in the U.S. where a fast-growing number of Americans are traveling across the land border with Mexico for health purposes,” said David G. Vequist IV, the founder of the Center for Medical Tourism Research, a group based in San Antonio, Texas, and a professor at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio."
"The Center for Medical Tourism Research found that Google searches in the United States for the terms “Mexico medical tourism” went up by 64 percent since July, compared to pre-pandemic levels before travel restrictions were imposed in March. “Google searches are almost directly correlated with consumer behavior when it comes to travel across borders,” Mr. Vequist said."

Even smaller employers in the U.S. are considering a domestic #MedicalTourism benefit to reduce healthcare costs...

Sophisticated smaller employers are gaining more access to tools that let them help their employees choose high-quality, high-value providers. “We want employers, who are actually footing the bill for the majority of health care expenses, to figure out how this is going to happen,” Winn says. “Employers are the single largest vested party in trying to fix health care. They have the most to gain and lose.”
