Why travel outside the USA for medical? 

The simple answer is cost. 
The USA has the most expensive medical system in the world. 
Also, compared to the wild price variations one finds in America, prices in Thailand are fairly consistant, regardless of location.
You will of course pay the most for a 5 star, private facility such as Bumrungrad and the least within the public health system.
However, the medical care can be of equal quality..


Why Thailand?

1. Thailand is now the worlds number one medical tourism location, seeing over 4.5 medical tourists per year. 
2. State of the art medical facilities.
3. Quality of care. 
Some hospitals provide a 5 star hotel like experience. 
This fact helps explain why the majority of Thailands medical tourists are not coming due to health care cost concerns at home. 
Instead they come for the excellent treatment they will receive.
4. One stop care.
Major hospitals commonly have everything under one roof, even labs, often making same day results possible. 
This is the primary reason we love doing our medical in Thailand.
No chasing around town for various appointments.We can have our annual physicals, dental checkups and anything else in one convenient location.

Cost wise, even if your need is just a routine check up and/or some dental work, it might be worth a trip.

Example of medical costs in Bangkok.

This (in Thai baht) dermatology bill (Jan. 2014) shows the costs for a skin checkup, biopsy (suspected skin cancer), lab report, doctors fee,followup visit, etc. 
Total cost came to about $175.00 at a private Bangkok Hospital (Phya Thai2).

My Blue Cross insurance (USA) covered most of the cost
as Phya Thai2 is an in network Blue Cross provider.
