Recently, studies and developments have increasingly showed medical travel to be an alluring service for travel agents to offer corporate clients that are seeking affordable employee healthcare. Much of this stems from the quickly rising cost of employer-provided healthcare.

On average, the cost of providing healthcare benefits is greater than $10,000 per employee per year, according to Aon Hewitt, the human resource consulting and outsourcing business of Aon Corporation.

The analysis went on to conclude that the 2012 average health care premium rate increase will be 7%, slightly lower than the 7.5 percent mark in 2011.
