An anxious medical tourism marketing reality is setting in for facilities seeking the U.S. patient. Staffing your international patient department with top notch service agents is not enough to attract the volume of patients required to sustain a financially viable medical tourism department.
Your medical facility needs a direct marketing approach to the patient along with a deep connection that will last a lifetime. People have been referring doctors to friends and family for years as a way of helping others in need. Your facility needs a friend to refer your services as a proven marketing resource.
Medical Tourism Connection has been providing service since 2007 and building a stronger relationship between the provider and patient than anywhere else available, or with any other marketing service. If you have all the patients you can handle already scheduled for 2012 than you probably won’t need our services. For the rest of you I invite you to take a look at everything we can offer you. It’s free to look, it’s free to join and it’s free to receive patients!
If you do one thing for your medical tourism business in 2011 make sure it is to join Medical Tourism Connection for all of your marketing needs. To receive more information contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

John prescription savings with the Medical Tourism Connection program was over $115 with one prescription!
As an advocate for Medical Tourism Connection and recognizing that this was a terrific opportunity, I joined the membership and business program.
It couldn’t had come at a better time; even though my wife and I have health insurance. I would like to share the reason why… the other evening I went to an urgent care center for a spider bite, it was badly infected and the doctor prescribed an antibiotic. I left and went to a CVS pharmacy to fill my prescription; I took the opportunity to ask the pharmacist if she could check what the difference in cost was to purchase the prescription with no insurance, my insurance card and the domestic medical tourism savings card that came with my Medical Tourism Connection membership program. To my surprise, the antibiotic price with no insurance or domestic medical tourism savings card would have been $129.00.
With my insurance I had an out of pocket expense of $6.29, now, are you ready for what happened next….the pharmacist shocked me when she told me that the price of the prescription with the domestic medical tourism savings card was $13.85….that is a savings of $115.15 with no insurance just by having my domestic medical tourism card!
The interesting point here is that Medical Tourism Connection membership program costs only $49.95 a month for my wife and I.
In contrast to this, we pay $742.00 a month for health insurance for two. With that said, I may, in the near future, consider dropping the insurance in favor of an HSA account and a very high deductible catastrophic insurance of maybe a deductible of $10,000. After all, in one year of savings at $742.00 a month I would have $8904.00 in my HSA in just one year. Just imagine if we had good health for the next 5 – 10 years. WOW! WOULD THAT BE A GREAT SAVINGS!

The Healthcare Crisis Continues - Doctors may stop treating Medicare Patients. Fort Worth Star-Telegram Ocober 7, 2011
Startling headlines like this and the one in the photo are appearing more often in the media. If you don’t think you are in the middle of a healthcare crisis it’s time to wake up.
Since 2001 medicare spending has continued to surpass targets resulting in a debt that has grown to $350 billion. Unfortunately the lack of funding is getting passed down to the very people who are trying to give the care. With the upcoming cut in reimbursement payments for medicare, doctors will face another 29.6% cut to pay their own bills.
In the article Dr. Bruce Malone from the Texas Medical Association stated, “That [the upcoming bill] would be a major crisis for doctors. We love our Medicare patients, and the last thing we want to do is have to stop taking care of them because we physically can’t do it and survive.”
He goes on to say, “Essentially what it costs us to run our practice is 120 percent of what Medicare reimburses. It’s already essentially subsidized. If you take that and then drop 30% off it, there comes a point where it is just not viable.”
It’s becoming more important in this broken healthcare system to have an alternative option when someone says no. Medical Tourism Connection is that solution that Americans have been asking for. We welcome you with open arms and the world welcomes you with open arms.

Medical tourism is now in the reach of individuals and families by being offered through independent insurance agents as a primary source to local and global healthcare. The combination of global healthcare advocate with an independent insurance agent background and training is fueling the growth of the Medical Tourism Connection membership program. Medical Tourism Connection, C.E.O. Neil Fettig stated that independent agents are eager to add a lower cost healthcare program to their portfolio and are embracing medical tourism; this makes the program a perfect fit for the already healthcare familiar agent. The marketing success of the Medical Tourism Connection Advocate program has been attracting licensed insurance agents to take part in the new industry trend.
“I knew we were off to a great start this year with a moderate growth rate which we expected, but I did not expect the growth to be as fast as the previous quarter delivered. We are able to handle exponential growth with ease, it just came quicker than we predicted and until we ran the numbers we had no idea that it was going to be such a high percentage topping 390%. That gives us an even larger target to shoot at for next quarter; it is very exciting and I would not be surprised if we can achieve a four digit growth rate in the very near future.” stated Fettig.
The company, now in its fourth year, credits a proprietary software system designed in house as the support system allowing sustainable growth and making this company the industry leader. This type of preparation and forward thinking will payoff for this fast growing company in the short run and for many years into the future.

Medical tourism is now being offered by independent insurance agents as a primary source to local and foreign healthcare. Mr. Terry Curtin from Phoenix, Arizona has seen the decline in affordable healthcare as a major stumbling block in the insurance field, as well as a growing client concern, escalate over the last decade.
“Access to affordable healthcare may not even be plausible for many of the un-insured who can’t afford a high monthly premium. Today even the insured are struggling with the reduction of policy coverage and the final cost of paying for a treatment. Clients want to find the most affordable way to get to a doctor and people are genuinely scared of the final costs associated with medical and dental. Many people are turning to consumer driven healthcare to simply pay as they go and it’s working very well for my business and my clients.”
Mr. Curtin also stated that the addition of the Medical Tourism Connection program has rejuvenated his business by offering an option every family can afford and the 100% acceptance to the member based savings program makes everyone qualified. In addition he stated that over the next decade he sees globalized healthcare as an integral part of an ever expanding world economy.
