Top Ten Medical Procedures You Can Do Abroad

3. Male- and Female-Targeted Health Screenings
Some checkup packages are tailored specifically to age and gender. For example, the “comprehensive woman over 40” package at Joint Commission International (JCI)–accredited Bumrungrad International Hospital in Bangkok includes a physical exam, Pap smear, digital mammogram, chest x-ray, abdominal ultrasound, blood tests, thyroid screen, and eye exam for less than $400. I recently heard from one screening patient: “When I did three tests at home in June, I paid $1,500 out of pocket, and I still haven’t received my results. But at Bumrungrad, I paid $570 for a physical, an MRI, and several follow-up appointments, got my results, and did it all in a span of three days. I’ve never been so happy!”
