"Relocate to a healthcare friendly Country."
Seattle, Washington USA . C. Philip Slaton, president of The Icon Group, LLC announced that its domestic physicians and surgeons and dentists recruiting business, has been expanded to include the exporting of U.S. licensed physicians and surgeons and dentists from America to offshore countries especially to medical tourism countries. This new business activity is branded “Escape from America © ”. The branding relates to the fact that studies, such as the Cal Davis Medical School study, and Slaton’s own investigations, have shown that many U.S. licensed physicians and surgeons and dentists are, for various reasons, dissatisfied with the U.S. healthcare system.
The U.S. healthcare system is broken; it does not seem that it is going to be fixed. We propose that physicians and surgeons and dentists that are really dissatisfied escape from America to a healthcare friendly country where practice of medicine and dentistry and the lifestyle of U.S. licensed physicians and surgeons and dentists is like it used to be, like it should be . . .
Why shouldn’t you work only 35-hours a week and have a great lifestyle and live well in a country with not simply a different economy, but also a different attitude toward healthcare? How about living and working in a country where the difference between what the healthcare insurance provider will pay and the total of the charge for professional services is called the co-payment and that co-payment is paid by the patient before the procedure is performed?
Medical tourism is another reason to move off-shore. From our experience in producing the Medical Tourism Expos in the United States, we believe that America’s acceptance of medical tourism would be greatly enhanced if U.S. licensed physicians and surgeons and dentists from America would populate the medical tourism industry worldwide. Globalized healthcare, or medical tourism, is the future alternative to “Obamacare” and U.S. licensed physicians and surgeons and dentists should plan to join the movement by working abroad and treating Americans and others that seek medical tourism practitioners. We believe that physicians and surgeons and dentists w ould not just bring their American patients to medical tourism countries, but by them also relocating to medical tourism countries, the acceptance of medical tourism by Americans and the rest of the world would increase 10-fold.
So far the three (3) models or options that have emerged for the global deployment of U.S. licensed physicians and surgeons and dentists are:
- Starting their own parallel practice in a foreign country and bringing in their U.S. patients for surgical and dental procedures.
- Joining a practice, clinic or hospital.
- After establishment in the foreign country, entering the medical tourism industry.
