Medical Tourism 101: Listen Live for Big Savings
Have you ever wondered what the phrase “medical tourism” really meant? Are you looking for ways to cut back on healthcare costs (both at home and abroad)? We chat candidly with Amy B. Scher of Healthcare Hacks to learn more about her experience with receiving life-saving care in India, and what you can do to save right here in your own country.
If you’ve followed Amy’s story, then you already know she’s been through a lot. Diagnosed with chronic Lyme Disease, Amy wasn’t satisfied to suffer through the years of treatments she was receiving here in the U.S. When she found out that there was another far-away option for treatment, she took her often very expensive health care into her own hands, leaving the U.S. to seek experimental stem-cell therapy in India.
Regardless of how you feel about stem-cell treatment or traveling abroad for healthcare, there’s so much to learn from Amy’s story. Listen to our interview tonight at 8pm CST on our Blog Talk Radio show and hear about how medical tourism may work for you, what you need to get started, what to avoid, and how much it may cost. We’ll also be discussing:
· How to work out a payment plan with your current healthcare provider
· How prescriptions are not always what they seem
· The biggest way to waste money on new or experimental health regimens
· How to get that second (or third) opinion without feeling guilty
