Every year more and more foreigners use the services of foreign clinics. To unite all clinics was established the Association of organizers of international medical tourism (OMT). It will protect the rights of patients from other countries wishing to come to Russia for treatment.
Now the organization performs its functions. In the near future it is planned to merge hospitals and tour operators to increase the availability of this type of tourism. Foreigners will be able to receive quality medical care with quality assurance.
The main advantage of treatment in Russia – the relative cheapness. Many high-tech operations and procedures in Russia are several times cheaper than in USA or Europe. The quality of care remains at a high level. IVF, for example, in Russia is 2-3 times cheaper than in Europe, and the dental treatment is cheaper in 10 times.
