“Medical tourism” refers to traveling to another country for medical care. In 2016, more than 11 million residents left the U.S. to receive healthcare in another country.

Many insurance providers also rely on third-party verification services that cost in excess of USD150 per claim review. Ultimately, the need to complete these extensive checks on every claim, in the event that a minority may be fraudulent, results in extended processing times and increased costs. Both of which are passed through to consumers.
