Launches Medical Tourism Directory is a global directory and resource for Medical Tourism. Travel across international borders to obtain safe, effective and affordable healthcare choices.

Colorado (I-Newswire) March 21, 2014 - launched a web portal to help patients' access health care anywhere in the world. With increasing healthcare costs and growing demand patients are beginning to look outside their home market for healthcare options. Patients are becoming better educated, more aware and more mobile, with the willingness and ability to travel further for higher quality, more affordable healthcare. connects these patients with providers, helps educate patients, instills confidence and helps better prepare patients while promoting the Medical Tourism industry.

Medical Tourism is the process of traveling outside of a local area for healthcare, and is a booming industry of approximately $20 billion in the current year. With around three-quarters of a million Americans estimated to travel for health care this year, seeks to enable patients to make the best possible choices for their personal health care. Patients may choose to travel for a procedure for a number of reasons, from availability of a procedure to reduce waiting times, but the most common reason for a patient to choose Medical Tourism is for cost savings. Depending on the procedure and destination country, patients can save anywhere from 25% to 80% of the cost of having a procedure done in the United States.

"Medical tourism is truly changing the way people think about healthcare," says Greg Mogab, one of the founders of MedTrip. "People are able to find excellent western educated doctors, performing cutting edge procedures, at a fraction of the cost of getting it done locally. gives patients a new 'global choice'. Patients may discover healthcare alternatives they may not have previously considered at home."

Another benefit of medical tourism, according to Mogab, is the opportunity to combine a procedure with a vacation. "It really is a win-win. You can travel somewhere you have always wanted to go, have a procedure, and come home feeling great, looking great, having taken a vacation you may not have taken otherwise. Typically the cost of the procedure and the travel costs combined with the extended holiday are still less expensive than the same procedure at home."

Additionally, the ability to pay for medical tourism using funds in a Health Savings Account can make the trip something that may not have been possible otherwise. Mogab goes on to say, "Funds from HSAs can be used, in many cases, to pay for not only the procedure, but for airfare, hotel stays, and other travel expenses for both the patient and a companion".
