One early survey suggests that U.S. consumers are happy with the health care they get when they travel overseas.

WorldMedAssist L.L.C., Concord, Calif., has shared that finding in a summary of results from an informal, Web-based survey of 1,200 people who have contacted the medical travel logistics firm in the past year.

About 98% said they would consider recommending going abroad for medical care to others in a situation similar to theirs, and 96% said they were satisfied with the medical tourism companies they had used, according to WorldMedAssist.

About 15% said they would travel overseas to get care to save $5,000, and about half said they would travel overseas to save $10,000, WorldMedAssist says.

Only 2 participants said arranging for “after care” back home was a problem.
