Can You Just Compare The Cost Of Medical Treatment From Different Hospitals?

When it comes to overseas medical treatment, people may be tempted to focus more on what the treatment is going to cost than to think about other important factors, such as the quality of treatment they are going to receive and the skill and experience of the specialists who are going to carry out the procedure.

Maybe you have made some enquiries about going overseas for medical treatment. Maybe an overseas hospital has sent you a treatment costing or maybe you have received treatment costings from many hospitals, even in different countries, such as India and Thailand. Perhaps you now think you can make a decision about whether to go overseas for treatment and which hospital to go to.

But is it enough information? 

Is the costing you have received accurate and will you receive the quality care you require?

We, at International Medical Treatment (IMT), know that finding high quality, reasonably priced, medical treatment overseas can be difficult. And we are concerned that people considering overseas medical treatment may focus too much on cost and not enough on quality.

We can help you.

If you make your own enquiries, you may get treatment plans and costings from other hospitals that look attractive and cheap. But be careful!

Have you asked yourself, the following questions?

  • Do these hospitals have the required, advanced equipment?
  • Do their doctors have adequate experience to tackle the condition you are seeking treatment for?
  • What is their standard of customer service?
  • Have any of these hospitals received awards or peer recognition?

In-depth research about hospitals is crucial before you make a decision about which hospital would be best for you.

Overseas medical treatment continues to grow as people around the world seek quality and affordable treatment. However, knowing what to look for when considering overseas medical treatment can be difficult, especially if you have no idea where to start. For example, more than 500,000 international patients go to India yearly to get medical treatment and with more than 1,000 hospitals in that country alone, it may not be easy to decide which hospital will provide you with quality treatment.

It is important to remember that one hospital might be cheaper than another, but the quality of treatment in terms of the equipment, experienced specialists, and accommodation (among other things), should be major factors in determining where you choose to get your treatment. Value for your money only really happens when you get the best medical treatment for whatever the condition is that you are seeking treatment for.

Medical treatment may generally be less expensive in India than in Thailand (another major medical tourism destination for people from around the world). However, Thailand is not only known for its great infrastructure and beauty, but also for the state-of-the-art technology in its medical industry.

Thailand attracts more than 1 million medical tourists annually. Medical treatment in Thailand may be more expensive than in India, but the advanced medical equipment and the great customer service are added advantages for people who choose to have their treatment in Thailand. If you go to Thailand for medical treatment you may feel more at home, and you may find that the level of care shown to you is something that definitely helps in your recovery process.

Medical treatment in Thailand may be cheaper than in other countries such as the US and Europe, but the quality of medical treatment is still one of the best in the world, with the leading hospital in Thailand attracting more international patients than any other hospital in the world.

Overseas medical treatment can be a wonderful option for people, especially those with complex conditions. However, overseas patients should get value for money.

If the cost of treatment becomes the only thing a person considers when finding an overseas hospital, then the person might not be assured of getting quality treatment.

We, at IMT work only with leading, JCI-accredited, excellently equipped and excellently staffed hospitals around the world. Our clients can be assured that they will get value for your money and a proper balance between cost and quality.
