Along with 32 JCI accredited hospitals, substantial cost advantages help Turkey become one of the most preferred countries in medical care. Turkey offers savings up to 75 to 90% comparing the treatment costs in the USA. 

In addition to this, Turkish Airlines offers to those who travel to Turkey for medical treatment purposes:

In this context, the passengers -from Middle East, Africa, Eastern Europe, Balkans, Asia and Far East- visiting Turkey for their treatments who travel on Turkish Airlines will be eligible for a 50% transportation rebate following submission of required documents to the local Turkish Airlines Office in their city of origin.
