A doctor told FOX 2’s Chris Edwards he needed a common medical screening – colonoscopy – which he could have done at dozens of places around Metro Detroit for about $7,000.

Instead, he chose to have it done thousands of miles from home with help from Healthbase, a medical tourism agency that offered a Cost Rica medical travel package that included a colonoscopy, extensive dental work, and some fun activities as part of recuperation.

The colonoscopy procedure itself cost him only $350.

Check out the report by Fox 2’s Deena Centofanti, who tagged along with Chris for a coverage of his experience of Costa Rica’s health care services.
