Effect of Rising Insurance Coverage in USA on Indian medical Tourism

Medical tourism is an industry in its nascent stages. People from the western nations prefer to travel for medical reasons due to unaffordable healthcare costs in their host country. A number of reasons are behind the rise of medical tourism but one major reason is the rising cost of healthcare services and insurance coverage in Developed nations. USA happens to be the most expensive when it comes to healthcare. Rising insurance rates have increased the number of people without insurance cover. This in turn has opened up a vast gate of possibilities for the medical tourism industry. India is one of the favored destinations when it comes for medical tourism but it still lacks from other nations like Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. India needs to gear up for the opportunities coming from USA in terms of more and more medical tourists.
