Global Medical Tourism

Yesterday's NPR program Day-to-Day had an interesting program concerning global medical tourism and how many Americans were going overseas, the program focuses on Israel,  to gain access to medical care at a much lesser cost.  Here is link to the program's audio.  Below is a brief overview of the program's contents.

Thousands of "medical tourists" travel to Israel every year to take advantage of its state-of-the-art medical system. Even with the cost of flights and hotel, in vitro fertilization and cancer care in Israel costs far less than in the U.S. or Europe.
