Joe Harkins, Associate Editor of the Medical Tourism Association Journal, joins Mike and Joyce to talk about the growth of Medical tourism — going outside your home country for health care.

Nearly a million Americans went outside the country for necessary health care in 2013. Employers who provide health care for their employees are taking advantage of medical tourism to save money. One employer has saved $10 million while providing quality health care for their employees.

ABC’s Nightline reported on the economic advantages of medical tourism. http://www.medicaltourismcongress.com/blog/us-companies-consider-medical-tourism/

Joe speaks with Joyce and Mike about what people go outside the U.S. or other countries, and what destinations provide the best care.
