U.S. employers and their employees are turning to medical tourism from feeling the pain of rising healthcare costs and complicated provisions surrounding the Affordable Care Act. Jack Norton, a human resources manager at Blue Lake Rancheria, heard a cry loud and clear, saving $12,000 in healthcare expenses for his employee in the process.
Bruce Ryan, a construction manager at the Casino and Hotel run by the Blue Lake Rancheria tribe in Northern California, needed surgery for a debilitating and painful rotator cuff injury. His employer gave him the option to travel six hours to Stanford Medical Center or across the continent instead.
Both employer and employee are resting quite comfortably with the decision.
