Millions of Americans are not only broke; they're sick. But what if you need surgery - and can't afford it? What do you do? Increasingly, the answer for many Americans is: grab your passport and hop on a plane.
Almost a million Americans a year are traveling half-way across the world to get medical treatments in places like India, where the average costs for procedures can be just 10 percent of U.S. prices.
Wednesday, our week-long series on President Obama's plans for health care focuses on the boom in medical tourism.
Dr. Sanjay Gupta investigated hospitals in Delhi that are destinations for American medical tourists. What he found might surprise you: facilities stocked with state of the art medical equipment and highly-trained surgeons.
If the medical skills and equipment are so great at these Delhi hospitals, how can the care be so much cheaper? What are they doing that the U.S. isn't? Are there lessons U.S. hospitals can learn from India's private hospitals?
All good questions.
Sanjay will have answers Wednesday at 10 p.m. eastern.
See you then!
