Hospitals and Charities


American Hospital Association members incur in costs exceeding $28 Billion due to uncompensated care. It is estimated that this item raises the average member’s cost base by 6% and erodes its earnings by more than 30%. Hospitals and charities should begin to think about Medical Travel since a large number of inpatient procedures are non-emergency. These surgeries may be planned ahead, and allow a patient to travel a few days before and after the procedure. The first benefit would be diminishing the amount of bad loans and uncompensated care brought by serving overextended uninsured and underinsured patients, as well as achieving more results with the same charity care budget. Additionally, budget-constrained, non-emergency patients would be saving substantially and would be better able to cover all follow-up care back in the referring facilities. Lastly, patient loyalty would be encouraged by making them understand that their doctor and hospital helped solve their health issues in line with their realistic financial possibilities. Whether you are a hospital looking to improve your uncompensated care budget or a charity that might benefit from achieving more with less, Travel For Care is your partner in Medical Travel, guaranteeing a safe and seamless process for your patients.

Employers


Employer-sponsored health insurance premium costs have been increasing 5% year-to-year, with smaller companies facing up to 7% increases. This trend exceeds inflation and is taking its toll on corporate budgets. As a consequence, most firms are passing on part of the increases to their employees, raising their share of contribution by 12% in 2008. Nevertheless, the great value that tens of thousands of American patients get each year by accessing healthcare abroad can also be yours to make a difference in your employee health coverage budget. The fact that most non-elective surgeries can be planned ahead of time (including the most common cardiovascular, orthopedic, urologic, and general procedures), allows you to offer your employees the right (tax free) incentive to look for options in medical travel. Take control of your budget and realize the savings while Travel For Care takes care of the rest and guarantees a safe and seamless process for your employees.

Insurance Companies


In order to widen the product base and appeal to lower budgets, insurance companies have developed a variety of deductibles, co-pay levels, covered and not covered procedures, network choices, and other restrictions. This has only managed to provide a limited discount on average insurance premiums so far and has not managed to capture a controversial market for the more than 46 million uninsured Americans, of which at least 12 million have family incomes over $56 thousand/year, and who might benefit from radically less expensive policies. Innovative products in which certain non-emergency and planned procedures would be considered for Medical Travel would significantly lower insurance premiums without reducing the quality of care and underinsuring the client. This can be done by using low maximum coverage amounts or cash payment schemes. If you are an insurance company and are interested in creating low-price and appealing products that cover treatment abroad for non-emergency indications, do not hesitate to contact Travel For Care. Launch an innovative insurance product in a huge underserved market while we guarantee a safe and seamless process for your clients.
