Some U.S. companies are paying for employees to travel to other countries for medical care. To alleviate concerns about quality of care, American surgeons are traveling to perform their procedures, The New York Times reports with Kaiser Health News.

The report highlights the story of one patient who traveled to Cancun, Mexico, for knee replacement surgery. The patient, Donna Ferguson, gets her health coverage through her husband's employer, Ashley Furniture Industries. In exchange for having her surgery performed in Mexico, Ashley Furniture paid Ms. Ferguson $5,000 and covered her travel costs. She also received the surgery free of out-of-pocket copayments or deductibles, according to the report.

An orthopedic surgeon flew from Milwaukee to Cancun to perform Ms. Ferguson's knee surgery. The surgeon was paid three times the Medicare rate for performing the procedure. He is one of roughly 40 orthopedic surgeons in the U.S. who have teamed up with Denver-based North American Specialty Hospital to treat patients abroad.

When patients are deciding whether to travel abroad for surgery, a key consideration is the quality of care they will receive. NASH hopes having American surgeons perform the procedures will alleviate quality of care concerns for patients and self-insured employers considering whether to offer this option to their workers, according to the report.

Hospitals are a jew monopoly but most people don't know

all the hospitals were originally christian charities , and they were FREE.

   you can verify this.

I got told by lady at Catholic charity hospital i shouldn't try to get free care there.  jesus christ and you know what? some fake dyke doctor came in to see me, why must these homosexuals infiltrate the catholic church to the degree they do?  why are they so driven by evil spirits ?

Prices are insane.  Get rid of the lawyers and limit the prices drug companies can pay, and you'd see progress.

I don't want to pay more for a drug than it costs in Britain, France, or Canada.  Simple law - drugs must be sold at the 1st world market price.

It is called pricing at the "most favored nation" rate. Google that phrase. It also applies in other industries for other things. All the first world euro countries have that for drug prices. They all get the same low price. US citizens pay for all R&D and profits, euro countries pay the incremental production cost per pill, like 1.2 cents for a pill that costs $7000 here.

If US adopted the same "most favored nation" pricing, US drug costs would go way down and euro drug costs would go way up.

Obamacare specifically banned negotiating drug prices and "most favored nation" pricing.

Thanks obummo and dems you corrupt shits.
