Why Medical Tourism with COSTAMED?
At COSTAMED, we employ only the highest caliber, certified hospital physicians and bilingual staff to ensure you receive the quality of service you expect and deserve. We work diligently to serve as a haven of comfort and relaxation for our patients.
COSTAMED offers a wide range of services and procedures for a fraction of the typical cost. International patients can experience savings on some services up to 70% over standard U.S. prices for the same services. You can choose from cosmetic surgeries and procedures, weight control options, general surgeries, and dental procedures.
Most insurance policies will not cover elective procedures, such as cosmetic surgeries or cosmetic dental work. Since these types of procedures would have to be funded out-of-pocket, and are often very expensive, seeking medical treatment at COSTAMED makes economic sense. You can receive the same high-quality healthcare as you would in the U.S. at a significant savings!
Some procedures may not be available in your home country although they may be widely practiced in other parts of the world. In some cases, a life saving or extremely beneficial procedure may be available, but is still awaiting approval, only recently approved or on a long waiting list. For example, at COSTAMED Cozumel, our highly skilled physicians perform CCSVI (Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency), which is an effective treatment for Multiple Sclerosis (MS). We have had patients travel from as far away as Australia to receive this treatment.
Shorter Waiting Periods
Medical uncertainty can be frustrating and life threatening. Both in North America and Europe, subscribers of free healthcare can experience difficultly scheduling doctor appointments and long wait periods between appointments and procedures. For patients dealing with chronic pain, the wait may be too long. If you have insurance that will cover your procedure in your home country, contact them to inquire about covering the same procedure in Mexico.
Better In-Patient Service
It is common practice for insurance companies to put pressure on hospitals to discharge patients rapidly, sometimes too soon, in order to cut down on costs. At COSTAMED, we make sure that our patients are discharged only when they are ready and no sooner. Our staff to patient ratio is a much higher and our infection rate is much lower than standard U.S. hospital rates.
