NBC TV - Healthbase customer - Steve S, USA, Cardiac Surgery
No health Insurance and no possiblity of getting any. I had chest pain and lack of energy, with things getting worse everyday.
Then I saw a TV Program about the high quality and low cost of health care in India.
This sounded so good I really got excited. I went on the internet looking for information.
I didn't know much and lucked out when I chose Healthbase (www.healthbase.com) to assist me.
Going half way around the world for heart surgery creates a lot of anxiety and raises alot of questions.
Healthbase has all the answers and knows all the problems that may raise. These guys are great.
Healthbase arranged plane tickets, accommodations including a place in my room for my wife, estimate of the cost of my procedure,
and help with Visas for India.
They put us in touch with Dr.Trehan, a world class heart surgeon.
The procedure went well and I spent 2 weeks in Hospital recovering. I would recommend India and Healthbase, it changed my life.
For all you un-insured Americans out there:
Hey there is an alternative.
I feel a responsiblity to tell folks my story about India and Healthbase, so call me, I'll talk to you about what happended to me.
May be we can save your life too. Please ask Healthbase for my contact phone number.

Redefining Healthcare: Is the American System Broken?
Is the American healthcare system broken? Elizabeth Teisberg thinks so. In fact, it is estimated that over 400,000 Americans die each year ... all as a result of the poor treatment they receive in hospitals. Teisberg is the co-author of the new book Redefining Healthcare. Not only does Teisberg think the system is broken, she thinks it can be fixed and ultimately cost less money than it does now while delivering much better results. Join "Books of Our Time" host Dean Lawrence R. Velvel as he sits down for one hour with Teisberg to discuss these vital issues. Teisberg is Associate Professor at the Darden Graduate School of Business at the University of Virginia. Join us as the program explores the disconnect between patient value and healthcare competition. Which doctors are the best? Which are the worst? How does the public find out? What steps can be taken to assure that you are receiving the best healthcare possible? All of these topics and more will be explored. The Massachusetts School of Law, located in Andover, Massachusetts, makes high quality, affordable legal education available to less privileged persons who are traditionally excluded from the legal profession. As part of its mission of providing high quality education and information for both law students and the general public, the Massachusetts School of Law also presents information on important current affairs to the general public via television and radio broadcasts, an intellectual journal, conferences, author appearances, blogs and books.
