Ethical issues for medical tourism: Over charging a medical tourist

Since catering to the foreign patient, who can usually afford to pay more for a treatment than a local citizen, has become common practice for certain unethical doctors, they tend to do whatever they can to overcharge the medical tourist. This could be in the form of overprescribing hospital tests, charging more than the market price for a treatment and refusing to take care of post-operative complications.
