What to Expect From Your Medical Travel Coordinators Once You're Home


Posted by skymedicus STAFF on 7/27/2017 11:56 AM | Last Modified: September 26, 2017


While you may know that a professional, reputable and client-focused medical travel coordinator can help plan all of the logistics of your trip – which includes everything from ground transportation, to ensuring that you have access to 24/7 nursing care from your hotel, to paying the hospital bill in your behalf, and the list goes on – you may not be aware that their commitment to you doesn’t end when you safely arrive back home. 

On the contrary, you can expect continued support and assistance in four key areas:

  1. Provided that your medical travel coordinator is equipped with a HIPAA-certified web-based communication portal, upon returning you can securely and conveniently use this tool to communicate with your surgeon abroad on a number of topics related to your recovery.

  1. Your medical travel coordinator will provide you with a list of resources (both online and if applicable/available in your community) to help with your recovery. For example, if you’re planning on getting weight loss surgery, there are many excellent and reputable online forums where you can connect with a peer group to share experiences, and provide essential moral and emotional support.

  1. Your family doctor is also a key part of your recovery team. As such your medical travel coordinator will (with your approval of course) facilitate communication between your doctor and your surgeon abroad, so they can collaborate on your care.  

  1. If you need to head abroad again in order to have a follow-up treatment performed – which is not uncommon for certain kinds of surgeries – then your medical travel coordinator will handle all of the logistics for you. For example, many people who need multiple dental implants cannot have them all installed at the same time. However, the cost savings of such treatment abroad is so significant, that it more than offsets the flight and accommodation costs of a repeat visit(s).

As you can see, there are a number of important ways that a medical tourism coordinator provides valuable help long after you arrive back home. However, as noted above, ensure that you ONLY choose a coordinator that is credible, experienced and specializes in helping medical tourists like you. Their focus MUST be on your health and wellness at all times, without exception. If you detect otherwise, then it’s in your best interest to select a different coordinator, or change the one you have.
