Inbound medical tourism: how many patients and how much revenue?

Following up on our blog posting of Oct. 12 titled Medical tourism: fly-by-night trend or here to stay?, which focused on outbound patients, the question has been posed:

“How many patients and how much revenue is generated by international patients coming to U.S. hospitals for services?”

The most direct answer comes from a 2008 report by the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions. In that report, they estimate that more than 400,000 non-U.S. residents will seek care in U.S. hospitals and spend almost $5 billion for health services.

Additional data on international patients is available in the following sources:
