How does CureOnTour work?
In need of a Knee replacement? Hip Replacement? Bypass? Other procedures? CureOnTour is offering you the highest quality medical care at a fraction of the cost. By traveling abroad, patients save money on most surgical procedures without sacrificing quality.
STEP 1 - Obtain a medical travel estimate
We want to know about you, your medical needs and your expectations. Our partner doctors and specialists need to review your current medical condition. Cure on Tour recognizes that even with more common procedures, your case is unique. We accept scanned medical records in .pdf or .jpeg formats. Your local print shop, like FedExKinko's or UPSstore, should also offer scanning services.
You may also ask your physician if your file is available to you in the international medical communication standard. All of our doctors, specialists and hospital partners can receive the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard and it is the most preferred format for medical reports. We will gladly assist with record transmittal.
You will also receive our medical questionnaire and a release form authorizing us to forward your medical information and records to our medical partners.
Next you will receive a medical estimate that you may want to discuss with your physician. Your medical estimate will include a travel and accommodation package designed specifically around your health care needs. Once you have decided on a doctor/hospital, Cure on Tour will coordinate your travel and surgery plans.
Hospital fees include your stay, board, lodge and nursing for the amount of days specified in your contract. Physician and surgeon charges are also included, as well as any initial consultations and medical tests as specified. Each quote will accompany specific terms and conditions.
STEP 2 - Book Your Procedure And Travel
After you have accepted the medical estimate and your travel dates are confirmed, we will require a 20% refundable deposit. Surgery dates at our top hospitals fill up quickly and we can NOT confirm your procedure until we receive the deposit. We accept several forms of payment. Your coordinator will gladly assist you.
We have obtained preferred airfare prices for Cure on Tour medical travel clients from Air Malaysia, the national airline of Malaysia, and we will assist with travel preparations and booking your flight. As your departure date nears, we will require you to deposit the remainder of your medical travel estimate.
STEP 3 - Your Surgery
Cure on Tour has a fully staffed office at your destination. We will pick you up at the airport and take you to your deluxe accommodation near your chosen hospital. Usually the following day, we will take you to your surgeon or specialist for a pre-surgery check. You and your physician will determine if you are ready for your chosen procedure. If it is determined that the procedure will go ahead as scheduled, we will ask you to authorize disbursement of your deposited funds.
After your procedure, your surgeon or specialist will perform a post-surgery check and determine if you can be released from the hospital. Our staff will pick you up from the hospital and take you back to your accommodations to recuperate. With certain procedures we have qualified around-the-clock nursing care available. If your condition permits, we encourage you to stay and explore the natural beauty and scenery Malaysia has to offer. Or just enjoy your deluxe accommodations until your planned trip home. Regardless, our staff is there for you during your entire stay.
