Eye opening article:
“In Bangalore, India, heart surgeons perform daily state-of-the-art heart surgery on adults and children at an average cost of $1,800. For the record, that’s about 2% of the $90,000 that the average heart surgery costs in the United States. And when it comes to the quality of the heart surgery, the patient outcomes are among the best in the world.”

It’s actually becoming very common to fly abroad for major surgeries. I’ve been reading about this more and more. I think 60 Minutes did a segment no it a year or so ago….

Yes, “Medical Tourism” I am not sure, but I think that may have been more along the lines of Malaysia and their 6 grand knee/hip surgeries. As I pointed a co worker towards them a few years ago. This one is dealing with India now in the cardio vascular for $1800.00
This type of disruption in the medical field along with an equal disruption in education would go a heck of a long ways to making the middle class great again.
