When it comes to healthcare, costs always vary depending first on your location, country or
State. This is because of a myriad of reasons which include;
- Cost of living in that State
- The economy of the Country
- Fees paid by clinics for their space
- The doctor
While the cost of living in certain states might be low, others could be quite high. Developing
countries also have more expensive healthcare as almost nothing is manufactured within their
State. Also, a doctor’s level of expertise contributes most times to the charged amount of
healthcare. Most doctors charge by the hour.
The rate of dental tourism has increased worldwide because of the significant difference in cost
of treatments. Countries such as Israel have witnessed a wave of medical tourism. Statistics show
that as many as 3.45 million foreigners visit Israel annually and a steady one percent are medical
tourists. Over the years this number of medical tourists has doubled.
It is not just the affordable health care that pulls people, but the appeal of a country with such
rich history. After all, what’s not to like about getting cheaper healthcare, without sacrificing
quality and gaining the experience of a lifetime. In Israel, patients testify that the cost of dental
care and the dental implant is less than half of what they are usually charged in the United States.
