Formosa Medical Travel
Formosa Medical Travel, a medical travel agency based in Taiwan, works on behalf of patients seeking affordable medical care abroad. There is no charge for our services, and your procedure is fully insurable against complications through a US Insurer. All of the hospitals in our network have been accredited by Joint Commission International (JCI). These world-class facilities provide outstanding care at rates far lower than those in the United States. We will book your surgery, transfer medical records, assist in finding your flight and accommodations, and we'll be there at the airport when you arrive, all at no cost to you.
Taiwan, first discovered by Portuguese explorers, was initially named Ilha Formosa, meaning "beautiful island". At Formosa Medical Travel, we specialize in offering high quality medical care and service in Taiwan.
What is medical travel?
Medical travel - commonly referred to as medical tourism - is the practice of traveling overseas for healthcare. In recent years, medical travel has experienced tremendous growth, as costs in the United States have risen. As international travel has become more affordable, medical travel has become an increasingly sought-after option for a variety of procedures. Once viewed as the best option for healthcare, the United States has since been equaled - and even surpassed - by many countries around the world, especially Taiwan.
With medical teams that speak fluent English and are trained and educated in the United States, American patients can have confidence that the quality of healthcare they will receive in Taiwan will meet or exceed that of the United States - at a fraction of the cost.
What we offer
Formosa Medical Travel works hard to ensure a comfortable and rewarding medical trip to Taiwan. We make traveling for medical care safe, easy, and affordable. After you get in touch with us via e-mail or phone, we will provide you with the information and guidance you need to choose a hospital and doctor. Then, we'll assist you in requesting your surgery, transferring medical information, obtaining an evaluation from your medical team, booking an initial consultation, and scheduling your surgery. We will help you book your flight and accommodation. When you arrive in Taiwan, we'll be waiting for you at the airport. All necessary transportation will be arranged. We are an end-to-end medical travel agency, and we'll take care of all the details - from your arrival to your departure.
We have negotiated agreements with our network hospitals, and there is no charge for our services. You pay the hospital directly, and do not pay any extra fees or surcharges for booking your surgery through Formosa Medical Travel. You pay the same rate you would pay if you were to contact the hospital directly.
All of the hospitals and doctors in our network have outstanding track records in medical care, and operate in modern, state-of-the-art facilities. All of our hospitals have achieved accreditation from the Joint Commission International (JCI), which evaluates medical facilities and ensures that they adhere to rigorous standards of quality and care. JCI is often referred to as the "American Standard" of hospital accreditation, and hospitals must go through a lengthy and meticulous process to achieve this exclusive certification.
The medical teams we work with are chosen for their skill and experience, as well as their ability to communicate in English and provide international patients with a safe and comfortable procedure. Although the ultimate choice of doctor and hospital is in your hands, we provide you with all of the information you will need to make an informed decision. With Formosa Medical Travel, you can get a world-class medical procedure without having to go through months of difficult research and preparation. We'll be there to assist you with every step of the process.
Why is it so inexpensive?
There is a common misunderstanding about medical care today: that a higher price correlates with higher quality. Many people falsely believe that quality suffers when costs are decreased. In reality, the price of healthcare is affected by a number of factors. These include obvious costs such as those associated with insurance company bureaucracies, wages, and medical malpractice insurance; as well as often-overlooked costs for things like real estate, construction, maintenance, and education. Taiwan's healthcare system has the lowest administrative costs of any in the world, at less than two percent. In addition, many American hospitals have to charge higher rates in order to recoup losses they incur on uninsured patients. All of these costs are eventually passed on to the patient, which is why leaving the United States for medical care has become so popular in recent years.
