Health Care Across US-Mexico Border: A Two-Way Street

The following article appeared on Friday in the Medical Tourism Association’s (MTA) online magazine, Medical Tourism Magazine.

Those of you who have been following my blog for some time now, know that the MTA copyrighted my White Paper without my written permission. However, because this article deals with a subject that I have already written about in the past, I thought it would be a dereliction of my responsibility as a blogger to not post this to my blog and to deprive my readers of the information it contained.

Here is the link to the article.

The US workforce is increasingly Latino and will be for the foreseeable future, especially in CA, AZ, NM and TX, not to mention other states like CO and NV.

To allow cross-border health care and not cross-border workers’ comp medical care is quite frankly, wrong and short-sighted. There should be no difference between getting knee surgeries in Houston and knee surgeries in Tijuana and Baja.
