An American hospital charges a lot. The US medical system in general does. To save money, 100,000s of Americans seek care outside the United States each year. Medical tourism has been around for decades but has become more popular.

High American prices make it easy to offer bargains: Compare the US to Mexico:
– knee replacement about $30,000–sometimes double or triple that–versus typically $12,000;
– knee replacement implant about $8,000 vs. about $3,500;
– night in the hospital about $2,000 vs. $300.

Utilizing Mexico imposes no co-pays nor deductibles. Some insurance companies even cover all travel costs. Plus pay a $5,000 bonus. A company that insures employees can save half what’d they pay for US care. That’s even after paying travel expenses and incentives.

Further, American surgeons can earn three times more performing abroad. And be out of country less than a day. The American surgeons work closely with a Mexican counterpart and local nurses.
