    Medical Tourism,

    With the onset of 'Obamacare' will more patients travel outside [Thailand etc.] the USA for prompt, quality care?
    How to invest if this is the trend?

    Piece of piss.
    Offer dirt cheap open heart surgery in Thailand.
    Get the punter to pay up front.
    Success rate 0%.
    Specially if you employ me as the surgeon.

    I don't support Obamacare, but also do not think it will produce more medical tourism, if anything it should be less since compulsory health insurance is one of its provisions.

    It's beginning to sound more and more as if the Courts may (hopefully) strike that part down, it really seems absurd Government can require you to buy something from a private provider just for the right to breath.

    It is true but they have to have an UK partner this goes back to the second world war when the GI married girls and took them back to the USA.When his lady was due to give birth back to blighty for free health care.
