Medical Tourism Coverage for Peace of Mind

Medical tourism, the practice of traveling abroad for bariatric, dental, and plastic surgical procedures, has become increasingly popular. It offers a chance to save money due to favorable currency conversion rates and the strength of the dollar. Patients who choose Tijuana Bariatric Center benefit from cost-effective and safe treatments that deliver outstanding results.

No matter where surgery is performed, unforeseen medical complications may arise. When a patient is abroad, the concern and uncertainty over these issues can increase. Ultimately, anyone who undergoes an invasive procedure like bariatric surgery wants to know that the medical team that they trust is also looking out for their personal investment in themselves and their wellness.

How Medical Tourism Coverage Benefits You

Our insurance policy provides coverage for unforeseen situations that may arise during your medical procedure and stay in Mexico. Complications, although rare, can occur in the days following the procedure, such as issues with sutures, staples, or leakage in the altered digestive tract. This insurance helps cover expenses like diagnostic tests, treatment, and any necessary readmission to the hospital, depending on the situation.

Medical tourism coverage can also assist with additional expenses, like extended hotel stays or airline change fees if your stay in Tijuana is extended. It's important to note that coverage may vary based on your medical condition, and certain restrictions apply. During your virtual consultation with Tijuana Bariatric Center, our staff will provide you with detailed information about the insurance policy and any applicable restrictions, ensuring you have a clear understanding of your coverage.

Putting the Patient First

In addition to coverage for medical tourism patients, Tijuana Bariatric Center provides other amenities and services that put the needs of the patient first. All surgeries are performed in full-service hospitals using state-of-the-art medical equipment.

Following weight loss surgery, patients will rest and recover in the hospital in special rooms designed to ensure comfort and relaxation. We monitor patients for several days to prevent early complications. You’ll also be able to consult with our surgeon and nutritionists to learn about follow-up care, diet, and exercise after bariatric surgery.
Finally, if the cost of bariatric surgery proves too much of a hurdle for your household, we offer financing options to ease the burden of surgical care and get you started on your new, healthier life right away.

The Time for a New Start Is Now

Thousands of successful and happy patients have undergone weight loss surgery with Dr. Garcia since we included medical tourism insurance coverage, with our surgeries beginning in early 2017. All of our patients benefit from the financial security that this coverage brings. If you have considered bariatric surgery in Mexico but have hesitated because of the possible cost of complications, consider this a chance to go forward with the right decision and take the first step toward a healthier tomorrow.
