Medical Tourism Does Not Always Go To The U.S.

We have heard over the past weeks how great American health care is. If I needed a very complicated procedure and money was not a concern I want it done in the United States. Unfortunately, that is not always possible. Crooks and Liars reminds us of the thousands of people, insured and uninsured, that travel outside the U.S. for medical care.

"We've heard the right wing talking points about how people from all over the world come here for medical treatment, but what rarely, if ever gets pointed out in response is that each year, tens of thousands of Americans travel outside the U.S. in to get medical treatment, sometimes life-saving procedures. Many of these people have health insurance, but they make the trips because their insurance companies won't cover the whole procedure, if they cover it at all."
