- Excerpt from Traveling for Major Medical Care at Someone Else's Expense: Is This the Future?

You've heard of folks flying to India or Mexico or some other farflung place to have surgery and save a bundle. Yet when they leave the borders of the good old U.S. of A, they also shed all the safety systems and the legal protections that patients here take for granted if malpractice happens.

Now there's a new option: the medical vacation, without leaving home (or at least the U.S.). Yes, there's a chance you can have it all: gourmet food, ocean views, and surgery in a respected American hospital. And more: save money. And still more: equal or better statistical outcomes to your hometown hospital.

The catch: Only a few big employers are venturing into this new style of health care. But if it catches on, this could be for you too. Here's a newsletter on how it works.
