According to The Medical Tourism Association "International Medical Tourism" is rapidly gaining acceptance by both the public and the medical community at large, as a real solution to the high cost of healthcare and wellness practices.

For people without insurance or those needing medical procedures that insurance won’t cover, "medical tourism offers an attractive alternative to rising healthcare costs".

In the U.S and Canada, the rising cost of healthcare is pushing people to look for other options. Although Canada has an admirable healthcare system in many respects, many residents admit that there is a serious crisis brewing.Long wait times for certain procedures is also a big factor for residents of Canada and other countries with socialized medicine, and is effectively forcing people to look for other options.Wait times of a year or more are quite common in Canada and England. Contrast this with "wait times" of weeks or even days in Los Cabos and other medical destinations of Mexico.
