If you see yourself in any of the following situations, then it is a good indication that you should investigate further for additional solutions of those offered in your home country. Dr. Gilete and his team can advise you accordingly taking into account all the detailed aspects of your case.

• High Costs

One of the main if not the most influential factor for selecting a specific surgery or location are the high costs associated to an operation. While many seek the cheap among the cheapest, we believe in offering quality and results at a lesser expensive rate.

• If you are uninsured or underinsured Underinsured Medical Tourism

Not everyone is insured with a medical plan and most certainly not everyone has a great medical insurance that basically covers all their needs. In fact, less and less medical insurance companies are willing to hand in a good coverage at a price that a person can afford, putting even closer those who are underinsured and uninsured at a thin layer distance between them.

• Procedures not approved by insurance companies

More and more insurance companies impose greater limitations to what you can activate your insurance for. For example, even though the procedure is accepted, you might run the risk that the ideal implant is not approved, or even the other way round. It is important to undergo the correct procedure with the correct implant if needed and not let the insurance plan influence on your decision.

• You have a long waiting list

You can have your operation approved however with a cost of having to wait a long period for it. This can be quite frustrating especially for those who live with chronic pain due to the need of the operation in the first place.

• Elective surgery not covered by insurance

The importance of deciding for an operation differs from person to person, so for some, an elective surgery can be as important as an urgent operation. Don’t let insurance companies dictate what is elective for you or not.

• New technologies not yet available in home country

Due to many reasons and different factors, some countries are more developed than others when it comes to new techniques and advanced technologies regarding to medical procedures. Medical tourism allows country borders to be invisible, so why not take advantage of it.
