Why do people fly to Russia for treatment all the way from America itself?
And the Americans?
However, frequent guests in Russian clinics are also residents of the United States and Europe: they come here for treatment for financial reasons. In America, Switzerland, England, medicine is expensive, insurance in the same States covers a limited set of services (dentistry is not included in economy insurance), and appointments with narrow specialists – orthopedists, reproductive specialists, cardiac surgeons – can be expected for months. It is cheaper and faster to buy air tickets to Moscow and go to local private clinics: you can get to many even the next day. Not the last argument for the same Americans – you can not be afraid that after visiting the institution you will be rolled out a surprise bill with a bunch of zeros, to pay off which you will have to take a huge loan (real practice in the USA). The full cost of treatment can be calculated even before it starts. And it will definitely cost less than in America.
