Find Health in Ecuador as new Corporate Gold Members of the MTA
Ecuador, for some time now has offered a haven for retirees seeking a better quality of life for a lower cost. Ecuador has received ratings as most improved healthcare in the world and a top 20 position for healthcare efficiency. Better quality care and affordable costs are the right first steps in becoming a destination for medical tourism.
Cuenca, known for its rich history, first-class infrastructure and temperate climate; has been attracting mainly North American retirees for years. International Living Magazine has declared Ecuador #1 out of 22 best countries on its Annual Retirement Index for five years running.
These retirees, locals and medical travelers are able to take advantage of Cuenca’s top-rated healthcare facilities that offer medical procedures at one-tenth of the costs compared to prices in the U.S. In Cuenca, many of the doctors have received their training in the U.S., and they offer very personalized care, even making house calls when necessary.
A study commissioned by the World Health Organization (WHO) rated medical care in Ecuador among the most improved in the world, ranking it sixth in the category. The report said: “The government is investing heavily in new facilities and services as well as medical education, and the results are paying off. We are seeing increasing numbers of foreigners visiting Ecuador to take advantage of low costs and high quality services. Medications are also plentiful and inexpensive.”
A study by Bloomberg.com ranks Ecuador in the top 20 in the world for healthcare efficiency, reporting a per capita annual cost of only $332. In comparison, the U.S. ranks 45th with a per capita cost of $8,608.
According to several studies, medicines are another bargain in Ecuador, in some cases costing less than 10 percent of U.S. equivalents. As an example, asthma inhalers that cost from $85 to $250 in the U.S. can be purchased over the counter in Ecuador for $15 to $35. Commonly prescribed heart medications in Ecuador average between 15 percent to 20 percent of U.S. prices.
According to American citizens living in Cuenca, Ecuador, one can expect to pay just 7-15 percent of what they would pay in the U.S. for medical treatments. A heart bypass that would cost $130,000 in the U.S. will cost closer to $11,000 in Cuenca, and a hip replacement priced in the U.S. from $43,000 to $51,000 will cost only around $8,000.
Some of the procedures they specialize in include; cardiology, cosmetic, dental surgery, eye surgery, gynecology, neurology and orthopedic surgery.
And finally, it’s not only expats and medical tourists from the U.S. who are taking advantage of the medical system, but Ecuadorians living in the U.S. often travel home (sometimes after many years) just to make use of the affordable healthcare that their native country offers the rest of the world. As a result, “Find Health in Ecuador” has earned a reputation as one of the most prominent medical tourism companies serving the Medical Tourist Industry in Cuenca.
