"Veiovis GlobalAccess was innovated precisely in response to today's consumer, who demands direct access to the best medicine the world has to offer," says Joseph Husslein, President and CEO of Veiovis. "Patients themselves - not just their employers or their insurance companies - are more globally and medically aware. Veiovis GlobalAccess has innovated a way to give individual consumers more control over their medical travel options."
Veiovis GlobalAccess is the company's high quality, low cost solution for individual patients seeking one-time access to its medical travel services. Veiovis GlobalAccess allows individual patients to tap into Veiovis' international network of world-class medical providers, doctors, and travel and concierge partners to avail of the best, fully coordinated medical care.
According to John Runge, the company's Director of International Development: "Veiovis GlobalAccess will appeal to a variety of individuals, such as those with limited or no health insurance, Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) or high deductibles; or those seeking a single medical procedure that, even with insurance, is not easily or affordably accessed locally."
High success rates, ease of travel pre- and post-treatment, and manageable aftercare procedures - these benefits make medical travel a viable option for a host of medical treatments. Procedures that are frequently sought overseas include: cardiovascular surgery - such as heart bypass and heart valve replacement; orthopedic surgery - such as hip replacement and knee replacement; cosmetic surgery - such as breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, abdominoplasty or tummy tuck, and face lift; women's health services, such as hysterectomy; and vision correction procedures such as Lasik surgery.
Veiovis GlobalAccess offers all-inclusive Package Rates that cover doctor and hospital fees, diagnostics and pharmaceuticals, hospitalization costs, and patient aftercare. Even with the cost of travel and hotel accommodation, the Veiovis GlobalAccess Package Rates offer significant savings compared to the cost of the same procedure performed in the United States.
