Main » FAQ [ New question ]

Medical tourism is the act of traveling to other countries to obtain medical, dental or cosmetic care. A combination of many factors has lead to the recent increase in popularity of medical tourism: high costs of healthcare in industrialized nations, waiting list, ease and affordability of international travel, improving technology and standards of care in many countries of the world.


We encourage our patients to discuss their plans with their primary physician. While most physicians are familiar with the concept of medical tourism, it may be necessary for you to help educate them further on the proposition and share some of our educational materials. It is not uncommon for a physician's initial reaction to be skeptical, although we find that doctors generally become more receptive to the idea once they look into the actual hospitals, physician credentials and overall price differential.


All patients can reach M&A Group through our website or email. Additionally, those who elect to use a local guide will have full-time service and assistance from our carefully chosen patient liaisons.


Patients can receive expert medical care for 40-80% less cost at our overseas hospital network. Fees in the U.S. are driven by labor overhead, administrative expenses, and insurance contracts. Over 71 percent of hospital costs are labor related according to a recent World Health Organization report which helps to explain some of the cost advantages for countries with low labor costs. Healthbase eliminates these burdens by connecting patients directly to hospitals, allowing us to offer premier services at prices unavailable in the U.S. Quality has always been our primary concern at Healthbase. Our continued success depends entirely upon our reputation for world-class surgical services.


Our medical quotes factor in hospital fees, physician charges, an initial consultation, medical tests as specified, anticipated meal and accommodation charges based on the expected hospital stay, registered nurse coverage and a follow-up consultation after your medical treatment is complete. Each quote will accompany specific terms and conditions for the quote. Separate quotes will be provided for travel-related charges like flight, transfers and accommodation.


Our partner hospitals provide first class medical treatment for 20-60% of the cost of comparable US medical services. For major procedures, our members can save thousands of dollars through our services.


Before actual treatment consumers it is necessary to make 100% an advance payment to plan their processing. There are some variants of payment accessible to consumers, using PayPal.


M&A Group provides several payment options using PayPal. Paypal is an account-based system that lets anyone with an email address securely send online payments using their credit card or bank account. Over 100 Million users use PayPal to send and receive money. Please visit http://www.paypal.com/ for more information. PayPal account setup is easy and it is free for buyers.


Our continued success is dependent on our reputation for providing quality care at discounted prices, so the quality of our partner hospitals is our greatest concern. To ensure exceptional service, M&A Group performs a rigorous screening and selection process through on-site visits and extensive research. We also monitor the quality of our providers through patient feedback and reports by international healthcare agencies.


The schooling, training and board certification processes for physicians and surgeons are comparable from country to country. Many surgeons overseas have trained in the United States or Europe, just as many doctors in the United States and Europe have had some part of their training abroad. Ultimately, each hospital that caters to Medical Tourism has its own credentialing and standards and should be evaluated on an individual basis. Many hospitals and doctors have received international accreditation and can be evaluated quickly and easily if this is the case.


Our partner hospitals generally have state-of-the-art facilities and all the latest equipment you would find in Western hospitals. Most of our hospital partners have latest equipments.
 


The primary considerations in choosing a hospital should be quality of care and cost. Quality can be similarly assessed through the M&A Group portal and our variety of materials. Patients can review our hospital research, testimonials, patient assessments and objective facts regarding each of our partners.


Our Partner hospitals offer excellent registered nurse coverage. Patients often find that the ratio of nurses to patients is significantly better than that of Western medical centers.


Your physicians and nurses speak fluent English so patient should have no trouble communicating with nurses and physicians at our partner hospitals. Additionally, M&A Group offers local guide in selected cities to help you in any translation.


It depends on the medical procedure. At the time of quote, our hospital providers will advice on how many days prior to the treatment you need to be there. Typically, it is just a day.


Your medical quote will indicate the minimum number of days you need for recuperation before you fly home when they send your treatment quote. This duration may vary depending on your treatment and recovery


Our current hospital partners are located in Russian Federation and we are expanding to other countries.


There are many countries around the world that provide the same high quality medical care as that found in the USA but at a fraction of the cost. In the future, we will be adding more countries and more hospitals to our network. Russian Federation are just the beginning. When selecting our medical providers, we look for well-established hospitals that are internationally accredited, access to international airport, have experience in dealing with international patients, and maintain the highest standards of care and hygiene.


No. M&A Group is not a healthcare provider and we cannot offer medical advice ourselves.
