Border chaos threatens US medical tourism

 

So far, the article says, the increase of troops and security along the US-Mexico border hasn’t stopped people from making their way across for care. But many are nervous about increased security, long lines and a potential shutdown.

The article gives examples of clinics with US outbound medical travelers stockpiling medication, even birth control pills, because they fear getting stuck in Mexico if the US closes the border.  Another Tijuana-based clinic in Mexico, where half their patients are American, says that while their patients are still showing up as usual, they’re calling each morning to make sure the office is open.
