What are the risks associated with medical tourism?

Arpanu Medical / 25/08/2021 / Treatments

Every individual’s first and foremost concern is their own safety when embarking on a new journey as the most priceless and irreplaceable thing we have is our wellbeing. In this regard, while there are standard travel insurance policies to alleviate travelers’ concerns about traveling, these basic policies are usually intended for vacations and they only cover trip-related situations such as accommodation and lost baggage and belongings. Therefore, such standard travel insurance policies do not respond and soothe medical tourists’ “What if…” doubts on their minds about their medical treatment procedures.

Though the hospitals and clinics that Arpanu Medical Travel collaborates with are professional healthcare service providers that strive to minimize the complication risks to zero in all the procedures they carry out, it must be noted that any medical procedure intrinsically poses a complication risk. In consonance with this, globally patients are required to state their explicit consent for operations they undergo, to express that they acknowledge the risks for any complication that may arise in accordance with the nature of the procedure carried out.

Being verily cognizant of our patients’ needs and concerns, we have collaborations with a range of insurance companies to help our patients put their minds at rest, as we offer medical travel insurance policies corresponding to your designated medical treatment. Per your request, we add medical tourism health insurance option of your choice when preparing your package.

As our fundamental principle is to provide only the best options to our patients, we have partnered with Custom Assurance Placements, which administer the Global Protective Solutions (GPS) program. GPS is the worldwide leader in providing risk mitigation solutions specifically for medical travelers/tourists. By partaking in the GPS program, you can benefit from insurance coverage for both health and travel-related events. Among the concerns related to medical tourism, “whether patients will be required to pay for the additional medical expenses’ in case of medical complications, or ‘helplessness in a foreign country without insurance’ are obliterated with the GPS program. Depending on the causes for the complication, the GPS insurance policies cover certain costs for medical complications requiring further operations. Additionally, the GPS program is the only package available that provides protection while you are in the host country as well as when you return home for a period of 6 months. Also, if you are to be accompanied by someone throughout your journey, travel companion coverage can also be selected.
