Affordable healthcare isn't a myth. In fact, healthcare systems in other countries can be equally as good—if not better—than that in the U.S.—and charge far less for their services.

It's not uncommon for these medical tourists to save tens of thousands of dollars—or even more—on medical treatments without sacrificing quality.
A new report from International Living highlights five of the top countries medical tourists are seeking out for high-quality, affordable medical care.
