I think the number of countries looking for American patients for medical tourism is larger than those that do not. The website also gives phone contact numbers for their offices in the UK and Spain. In looking at the site it appears that the insurance part of it is for members in the UK and Spain the the US portion of this is the availability of setting up a trip for surgery to Spain.
Each site list the other one as a partner so I am not sure who owns who here and how it all comes together. What is kind of interesting too on the site is the suggestion of getting a home equity loan to help pay for your surgery, well that’s almost a thing in the past in the US. You also get a $50.00 prepaid cellphone to stay in touch with family while under going surgery.
At any rate, here’s one more option for the files and information. BD
