Frequently Asked Questions?
Why Do I need a Medical Tourism Facilitator?
Most of us go to Google to search or research about a subject we are looking for. However, the information you specifically require may be available under various websites and it may as well be a stupendous task for you to find out what you want?
For eg. You want to know what is the best procedure for a treatment condition that you are looking for? How much does it cost? Which hospital in which country is the best for it? Can you talk to the Doctor who treats such conditions, and so on?
It is not impossible to get those info on Google, but we have aggregated all such info in a single place – that is our website and our personnel are familiar with that hospital and doctors.
Will it be more expensive if we go through a medical tourism facilitator?
Absolutely no. We provide the same estimate that a hospital will provide you if you send an inquiry to them directly. We are absolutely transparent and pass on the estimate provided by the hospital to you on their letter head. In fact it is advantageous for you to go through us, as, in case of cost escalation, we have a greater leverage with the hospital, as we refer many cases to them and can negotiate on behalf of them for you?
Do you have any preferred hospital or doctor?
We work for you, not the hospital. We have aggregated all information and have provided it in one place. Other than that we do not have any preferred hospital or doctor?
