How to avoid a catastrophic health expenditure?

How to avoid a catastrophic health expenditure

Before we talk about how to avoid catastrophic health expenditure, we need to know exactly what that entails for your dental treatment. The World Health Organization defines a “catastrophic health expenditure” to the event that forces a household to use above of 40% of their total combined income. Not surprisingly, about 60% of all bankruptcies filed in the USA come from such expense, underlying a terrible truth that the American Health system is a luxury that few people can afford. The key factors that have lead medical services down this path is threefold: the limited number of trained personnel, skyrocketing prices even for the most basic treatments and the proliferation of predatory insurance schemes.


Sadly, this includes dentistry services in the USA which makes life for people affected by dental problems a nightmare. Every day more and more people are forced to rely in donation campaigns or simply can’t get the treatment they need. This has increased the number of people looking at every alternative available for them, such as medical and dental tourism.


Dental tourism has become the biggest answer to avoid bankruptcy for American families, but many are still afraid to travel to another country where the prices are a fraction of the cost compared to the USA. To be fair, there’s not much to worry about. Many of them soon realize Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry has over ten years of experience offering the best dental service with the most complete follow up and warmest staff. Patients come to Cancun to combine their vacation days with a visit to the dentist to get their smile back and end up saving thousands. Safety in Cancun for tourists is the same as anywhere else in the world.
