Examples of people falling under this cluster are members of the boomer generation. The country’s current healthcare situation seems to place aging individuals at a disadvantage. They’re at a stage in their lives that calls for medical intervention, yet financial aid to help cover the costs can be scarce and difficult to obtain.
This dilemma has been one of the biggest contributors to the rise of the number of boomers who have chosen to turn to medical travel for their treatment.

Medical travel continues to open doors for wellness for people who previously believed it would remain out of their reach.
