Protecting yourself from legal issues during medical tourism

Prior to agreeing to any consent forms provided by the treating facility, ensure that all the terms and conditions are provided to you in writing. If you have any doubt regarding the conditions, it is better to consult a specialist medical lawyer and in the event that you are not in agreement with the prescribed terms and conditions, do not sign the agreement. If you have selected a package deal through a facilitator, make sure to protect yourself by guaranteeing that the medical cost includes covering any expenses for medical complications that might arise—this should be reflected in a consent form provided by the hospital. Ask about your rights regarding legal actions and make sure to check and read the agreement carefully before signing.
