Destination development events link marketers, facilitators, and insurers with health tourism providers that turn into successful business ventures. Once I am sure they are ready, I bring the parties together to help health and wellness tourism startups make the leap to the health travel marketplace.

"Since 1995, I've helped self-funded health benefit plan administrators design and manage their company's medical travel benefits. I introduce them to Centers of Excellence in the USA and 120 countries that I've inspected and pre-qualified. The results are lower costs for the trust and plan participants and higher benefit satisfaction."

I design surgical episodes of care under transparent, predictable, pre-negotiated case rates that include pre-op, destination and post-op care and outcomes and benefit satisfaction measurement. Provider settlement is paid as an extra-contractual payment by your TPA or ASO.

Pharmacy tourism benefit programs help self-funded employers and plan participants access high-cost prescription medications from the same manufacturers and with the same formulary, but at lower prices.

I design executive checkup programs to help companies protect their top talent when those who run the show neglect their health. Convenient one- or two-day examination programs at interesting destinations, worldwide, accommodate busy schedules while supporting the long-term wellness and productivity of senior executives.


For hospitals, clinics, ASCs, academic medical centers, facilitators, care coordinators, case managers, investors, insurers, self-funded employers, and tourism, economic development, and public health authorities.
