I needed to have one tooth pulled, and it cost me $912. We have no dental insurance, and basically it useless unless the company you work for pays for it. Because...most dental policies have a cap of $1200-$2000. That barely covers one root canal.
I have been reading that many Americans are leaving the country to have dental and medical work done because of the unaffordable prices. I need to do this, because I overheard the receptionst quote a person over the phone roughly $5,000 for one implant.
Multiply that time 28 = $140,000. Now I ask you - who can afford that?
I have found medical excursions to India that involve a cost of approximately 1/7 to 1/10 of the American cost. Also, some Americans are trying out Mexico, Hungary, and other eastern European cities.
Is any one familiar with medical tourism? Does anyone have a little time and interest to help me research this - independently - because I am going to have to make a decision pretty soon.
