Title: Traveling to SE Asia
Post by: cocorenee on August 06, 2013, 04:49:10 PM

I am not on dialysis yet -- my neph thinks I have 1-2 years -- and am planning a trip to SE Asia for an indefinite amount of time. I'm mostly concerned about costs associated with having bloodwork done every few months as well as costs associated if something emergent comes up knock on wood. I haven't secured any form of international insurance yet, but I know the costs of healthcare are much cheaper internationally than in the states and am wondering if I even need the health insurance at all... Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!
