The truth of the matter is that if Obamacare is not overturned by the Supreme Court in June, many more people will have to turn to medical tourism just to find care at all, as Obamacare will make it very hard to see a doctor. You will also be forced to pay for insurance (that you can hardly even use) or fined if you don’t. Also, if the government is subsidizing our healthcare, they will feel they have the right to dictate to us what care we need and what we don’t. It will not be about what is better for us, it will be about what is most “cost efficient,” including whether your being alive at all is even “cost efficient” anymore.

The lack of free market medicine we have in this country is exactly why we have such high healthcare costs. If insurance and government interference didn’t keep prices so high and patients could see any doctor they choose, doctors would actually have to compete for your business, like other industries do. Competition in any industry only improves it. It forces businesses to improve their product and find ways to lower prices. Competition in any industry, especially the medical industry, is a good thing.

That is exactly what we’re all about here at MediBid. We provide access, transparency, choice, quality, and privacy to our patients, things you cannot get when insurance or government is controlling your healthcare. We provide not only global medical tourism, but also domestic medical tourism for your convenience. Doctors from all over the country and the globe must compete for your business. You choose the doctor and procedure that is right for you. Register and make a Request today!

This year, a few hundred thousand intrepid American travellers will head to places like Thailand and Costa Rica, in search of something that they can’t find in the United States. They won’t be looking for Mayan ruins or ancient Buddhist temples, but something a bit more practical: affordable medical care. These medical tourists will be getting root canals, knee surgeries, and hip replacements at foreign hospitals. If health-care costs in the U.S. keep rising—and especially if Obamacare is overturned by the Supreme Court—more of us may soon be joining them.

At MediBid, we restore market forces to medical care. Doctors get to set their own rates based on their training, experience, and outcomes, and patients get to shop for medical care across state lines and international borders. Many times with MediBid, you will find procedures that are more effective than procedures allowed, or covered by health plans. Transparency and competition are the only way to achieve reasonable costs. Many of our employer clients offering group health insurance through MediBid save $5,000 per employee per year. Those are substantial savings. Patients are saving an average of 48% vs. insurance discounted rates, or 80% vs. retail. Contact us for more information.
