Volume 2, Issue 25: Ashley Furniture Launches International Medical Travel Program

Dear Colleagues:

Demonstrating the value of international medical travel, Marcus Gagnon Title at Wisconsin-based Ashley   Furniture shares his positive experiences with a program that serves his workforce:  high quality surgeries at tremendous savings for both Ashley and the employee.

In this exclusive interview, learn how Marcus worked with a concierge provider, Indus Health, to send individuals primarily to the close-by Latin American region.

We’ve also included on this interview the CEO of the Cancun-based North American Specialty Hospital where Ashley is sending employees for orthopedic surgeries.

This is a great example for employers to follow in their quest to deliver quality healthcare at lower costs.

This issue also brings you a report on the growing medical tourism market, how obesity comes with a hefty price tag globally, and how UnitedHealth could benefit from Trump’s executive order.

“Rising health insurance premiums, lack of transparency and increased awareness of how varied medical costs and quality vary dramatically between hospitals and across regions, have pushed consumers right into the arms of international and domestic medical travel. The growing industry provides the perfect solution for patients to receive the high-quality, cost-effective care that they need AND rightfully deserve!” – Laura Carabello, Executive Editor and Publisher, Medical Travel Today and U.S. Domestic Medical Travel.
