Credible, Timely, Affordable and Safe
Owned and operated by U.S. physicians, MedToGo International© (MTGI©) is the most trusted and credible healthcare referral service in North America. Specializing in researching world class hospitals, surgical centers and medical specialists from around Mexico and Costa Rica, MTGI© is able to match extensive resources and medical expertise to patients needing timely and affordable healthcare.
MTGI© began developing a network of the finest physicians and hospitals in 2000 by conducting personal interviews and certification background checks on more than 700 physicians and inspecting over 80 private hospitals abroad. Only the top 10%, or those meeting the strictest health standards, parallel to that found in the U.S. are selected. As a result, MTGI© clients can feel assured that they will be working with the finest physicians and institutions outside the United States.
For the MTGI© registered patient, whether it is a minor outpatient surgery or a more complicated kidney transplant, rigorous medical procedures are followed. Beginning in the patient’s hometown, pre-and post-surgery protocols are established with the patient’s physician/specialist to ensure the patient’s surgical readiness and long-term success. Depending on the type of surgery performed, accommodations are made regarding length of stay and follow-up medical care required back home, once the patient is released.
MTGI© provides a team of U.S. physicians and coordinators who oversee a patient’s care and serve as their advocate while they are abroad. Safety and peace of mind are a top priority. MTGI© is the patient’s medical and travel referral source before they leave, while they are abroad and once they have returned home. Each patient is provided an English-speaking Medical Liaison to attend to them throughout their stay abroad. The designated Medical Liaison is available to facilitate communication, coordinate day-to-day schedule, and provide information.
MTGI© offers complete healthcare packages with up to 80% savings off the price of a comparable medical procedure in the U.S. – without compromising quality. According to the experiences of MTGI© and research conducted by the University of Delaware publication, UDaily: The cost of surgery in Mexico can be one-fifth of what it is in the United States or Western Europe, and sometimes even less. A heart-valve replacement that would cost $200,000 or more in the U.S., for example, can be less than $30,000 for a registered MTGI© patient. A knee replacement for a registered MTGI© patient, including six days of physical therapy, costs about one-fourth of what it would be in the United States. Cosmetic and plastic surgery savings are also substantial.
According to Dr. Dagi, an academic physician at the Harvard/MIT Division of Health Science and Technologies, “The three major reasons why Americans are going abroad for surgeries are cost, the type of surgery undertaken and the regulatory environment. The biggest factor overall is cost. There are many places in the world that provide medical care at a substantially less amount than what you would have to pay in the U.S. In the case of Mexico, people have been going for dental care and medications, which are said to be analogous to that in the U.S.”
Every step of the way MTGI© guides each patient through the process ensuring that their experience is safe, reliable and successful.
