Why A New Trend Of Azure Collar Workers Are Outsourcing Their Medical Needs

Just so you don’t think that I am a lone voice in the wilderness about medical tourism and workers’ comp, here is a blog post from 2008 that echoes my writing, even before I had the idea. It is time the workers’ comp industry woke up, dropped their opposition to and disdain for, medical providers in other countries. Do you mind it when your loved one goes into a local hospital and is treated by a doctor who was born, raised and even educated elsewhere? Why is it okay for them to treat your loved one here, but not okay for them to do so in their home country, and in hospitals equal to, or better than what exists here? American exceptionalism is killing this country because it refuses to acknowledge that people in other countries are just as smart, bright, talented and capable as our own doctors. In fact, it is downright insulting to anyone’s intelligence, doctor, nurse, patient, or layperson to think that. The world is globalizing, and workers’ compensation in the US will not stop it. Health care, like all industries, is adapting to a global world. It is high time the workers’ compensation industry does the same.
