What Are The Benefits of Purchasing Pre-Made Medical Tourism Facilitator Contracts?
All our legal treaties have been carefully crafted. Our counsel specializes in international business law, making sure to shield your company at every step of the facilitation process. Our agreements will safeguard your company throughout the facilitation process, eliminating as many of your potential risks and threats as possible.
In the medical tourism industry, certain factors work beyond your control and can jeopardize the quality of your patients’ care abroad. This can include a wide range of risks such as exposure to infections or complications from a procedure.
Even if a patient has issues on their medical trip that are not directly related to your facilitation services, you can still have liability exposure. When unsatisfied customers file a lawsuit, your agency can be vulnerable since you are a central part of the process. A lawsuit filed by a patient can leave your company’s safety and reputation at stake!
Despite your attention to every detail, things can still go wrong. So, as a responsible facilitator, you should have systems and contracts in place that can mitigate your risk and limit your liability in such circumstances. This business is, after all, your property and your livelihood.
As a healthcare travel agent, you are bridging the gap between the patient and the hospital. You coordinate the whole trip for your clients; this is why when things don’t go according to plan, your agency can become the target. Thus, it is crucial to act proactively and protect your business from potential risks and threats. Providing yourself with limited liability is not about deceiving the patient or blaming them; it is about making sure no one takes advantage of your vulnerability in this sensitive area of service. There are definite risks involved, and you can become liable if you don’t take proper steps to protect yourself. This is why we offer patient waiver forms and contractual agreements to help you safely partner with hospitals and clients!

Find out everything about your prospect’s current health, medication regimen, previous surgeries, and family health history. This well-being profile will help you know if a patient needs a physical examination before the trip and enables you to provide the best service to them once they are a client.
