Buyers who attend the World Medical Tourism & Global Healthcare Congress get the opportunity to meet with thousands of individuals looking for their opportunity to sit down with you. Hosted buyers get the added value of certain costs reimbursed or waived pending their application. Either way, what better method of networking than to attend the conference that brings all of the players together. For example, at last year’s conference an MTA member and self-funded employer, Blue Lake Casino, saved 35% on healthcare costs by sending an employee to France. Both the medical facility and company were able to meet and begin the discussion of how they could help one another. All the while keeping the employee happy and healthy. The MTA is helping many self-funding U.S. companies – like Blue Lake Casino – connect with international healthcare providers who offer surgical procedures that save thousands of dollars in medical costs for employers and patients alike.
