Frequently asked questions and answers

How can I find out how much my treatment will cost?

Disease cases among patients are diverse, and if you want to know an exact estimate of the treatment costs, please contact us. We will suggest accurate directions for treatment tailored to different disease cases. Medical specialists will research your case history thoroughly and let you know the best plan for treatment in detail. Consultation and treatment planning is provided without charge.

Why do I need a medical coordinator?

A medical coordinator can give you specific information about treatments suitable for your illness, including a list of available hospitals, cost comparisons, as well as information about treatments. A professional coordinator needs to be well aware of the Korean medical system for the best treatment and greatest convenience of patients.

Why We Travel Health agencies are the best choice.

We take care of all procedures related to your entry to Korea and accompany you throughout the treatment process, providing an interpretation service. As we are located in Korea, we are ready to respond 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. We also provide a post medical service so that patients continue to have treatment after returning to their countries.

Why treatment costs are not always accurate. How can I plan my budget more accurately?

As each patient’s condition is different, we can only give an approximate cost based on the medical documentation and history that a patient has sent. The exact details of the tests and treatment methods can only be determined after a doctor sees you in person.
After the basic examination,  additional checkups or consultations with experts may be necessary for an accurate diagnosis, so costs for treatment can vary greatly. Although we will suggest the most reasonable estimate considering all circumstances related to the patient, please note that actual costs may still differ to the original estimate.

How much does it cost for a hospital stay per day?

The cost is calculated individually depending on medicines and treatments required. For a general care unit, it costs $300 per day on average.
