Chinese Americans Travel to China for Health Care

China Press, Posted: Jun 09, 2009

LOS ANGELES - High medical costs and long waiting times are compelling Chinese Americans to travel to their home country for health care services, reports the China Press. The newspaper interviewed a Chinese American man from Alhambra, Calif. who went to China and paid just $28 for a dental procedure that would have cost him $3,000 in the United States. Even with the travel expanses, he was able to save money. Another man who lives in Rowland Hights told the newspaper it takes him at least a month to see a specialist here, but in China patients can always see a doctor the same day because no appointment is
required.
