If you are traveling abroad for a medical or dental procedure you need to be healthy. A fever, infection, or an electrolyte imbalance may delay, postpone or even cancel your procedure. Passport Health will ensure that you receive all necessary immunizations, medications and supplies to keep you healthy and ready to complete your procedure and then enjoy the rest of your travels.
What is Medical Travel?
Medical travel is as simple and as complex as individuals traveling outside of their own country to seek medical or dental treatment. Far from a new idea, people have been traveling beyond their own countries in the pursuit of healing from the time of ancient Greece.
The modern rise of interest in medical travel stems from three primary factors: quality, savings and access. Increases in the universal availability of medical technology, greater collaboration and better patient care have helped level the quality playing field for all providers. Combine that with the reality of 30-80% lower costs internationally and innovative new treatments unavailable elsewhere, and medical travel is a compelling proposition.
