Should US hospitals seek out international patients?
Many elite healthcare institutions in the US seek out international patients who are independently wealthy or whose medical costs will be covered by their governments. This arrangement provides care to foreign patients that is not available in their home countries while simultaneously providing funds for domestic clinical and research programs, but some argue that international patients are taking up beds that could be used by vulnerable patients in the surrounding communities.
Many US hospitals seek out international patients who are able to pay for care not available in their home countries, but some argue that they take up beds that should go to local patients. Are you for or against US hospitals seeking out foreign patients?
