MT reasons

A McKinsey & Company report (2008) revealed that the core reasons for medical travel are those seeking:

–  Best technology regardless of cost (est. 40%) This may include experimental, traditional or disallowed treatments (possibly IVF)

– High quality and lower costs for medically necessary procedures/treatments (est. 30%) An uninsured or underinsured person may seek reasonable cost alternatives to the home country for selected treatments

– Quick access to medical care (est. 15%)  Specific treatments are not available in the home country, or there is a significant waiting list for an elective procedure

– Lower costs for discretionary medical care (est. 4%) this could include cosmetic surgery and wellness or spa treatments
