Medical Travel Taking Off: Enablers and Impediments to a Growing Health Care Phenomenon

Resource description

White Paper on medical tourism from UnitedHealth International (UHI), the global arm of UnitedHealth Group

The increasingly borderless view of the world is fueling the phenomenon of medical travel. While this trend is also referred to as medical tourism, medical travel is a more appropriate description because most people who travel for care do not add a tourism component to their visit (with the exception of those who travel for cosmetic or general wellness treatments.)
