The Medical Tourism Documentary is part of the MTA’s endeavor to initiate several educative measures to acquaint the average medical traveler with important aspects of seeking medical assistance from foreign lands. The documentary provides insight into the high quality of healthcare that Americans and traveling patients worldwide can receive when they travel to a foreign country. This documentary will bring to the notice of global audiences the high quality of healthcare available across several countries and change the image of medical tourism. The MTA has diligently worked on this project for over a year with the sole goal of making available a patient’s actual experience.

Free for public viewing on the official MTA website, the Medical Tourism Documnetary is expected to be watched by patients, employers, insurance companies and medical tourism facilitators. MTA is committed to its mission of elevating the levels of public awareness about medical tourism and works such as these are a demonstration of this. We will continue to work on many more documentaries and other educative tools.

This Medical Tourism Documentary is just one of the many initiatives the MTA has rolled out to educate the public across the world about the potential of medical tourism.

The one hour film traces the experience of an American patient, Bob, who traveled to Costa Rica to undergo a double knee placement in a foreign environment. He not only saves $80,000 but receives an excellent medical attention. His journey becomes even more pertinent as he represents a sizeable breed of first timers who until now had never left the shores of their homeland as they do not have  comprehensive health insurance.
