MSN Money advises: “Look abroad for cheaper health care”. The] blend of tourism and medicine doubled last year, with roughly 1.5 million Americans heading abroad for medical care in 2008, according to consultancy Deloitte Center for Health Solutions… It’s hard to argue with the savings, especially in recessionary times. Surgeries and dental makeovers in Asia and Latin America can cost as little as 10% of the equivalent services in the United States. Deals like that have some major U.S. insurers now peddling the overseas option as a way to cut costs on pricey procedures.”
