The justification is in the savings to the users, both the employer and the employee. The employers health benefit package will cost less if costly procedures are preformed outside the current benefit plan. Those savings can be passed on to the employees. Employees out of pocket expenses, deductibles and co-pays are reduced or eliminated, dependent on the provisions of the plan. Global medical care also provides opportunities to receive medical treatments and procedures not yet available in the United States. Medical travel offers individuals an opportunity to experience a foreign country and its culture.
