Preliminary

Medical and dental procedures have potential risks as well as potential benefits. For that reason, you should consider the overseas treatment option carefully. If you have any queries or concerns, discuss them with your doctor – and ask what is best for you. While it is a practical first step, the evaluation of your case which will be made remotely, using photographs and information which you will supply, does not, and is not intended to, replace an individual assessment made by a health care professional in person.

Medication Tours

Medication Tours is the trading name of Medication Medical Tourism Ltd. Any contract which arises directly or indirectly from any promotion, from or through the Medication Tours website, or if a customer is introduced by a third party, is between the customer and Medication Tours, and not between the customer and the member of the Medication Tours management team, with whom the customer may be dealing.

Medical/Dental Procedure

The procedure will be carried out in a hospital or dental surgery, and the surgeon or dentist will consult with you and undertake a careful examination before you finally commit yourself to the procedure.

Subject to you making payments as stipulated, we will assist you with arrangements for a preliminary assessment and consultation. This will involve you providing photographs and/or x-ray images which will be sent to the hospital or dental surgery for examination and analysis. We will send you more information about the photographs and x-ray images. After examining the images, the hospital’s medical team, or the dentistry team, will advise if you are suited to the medical or dental procedure which you seek. If the medical or dental team concludes that you are not suited for that procedure, it may suggest an alternative, which could be more costly than the price previously suggested. You can, of course, elect not to proceed.

The medical and dental teams have a well-developed ability to use photographs and/or x-ray images to assess a customer’s suitability for particular procedures. Naturally, however, a personal consultation and physical examination must be arranged. In the unlikely event that the surgeon or dentist advises at the final consultation, that the procedure assessed from the photographs or x-ray images is not adequate for your needs, an alternative procedure may be recommended. This may change the price. You can, of course, for any reason, elect not to proceed.

Payment

Dates are subject to availability. It is essential that the payments specified by Medication Tours are paid on the dates stipulated. Time is of the essence. If any payment is not made as required, bookings may not be made, and any bookings already made may be cancelled. Because accommodation is subject to availability, Medication Tours will ask you for payment more or less immediately after you have confirmed the accommodation you want.

The price for the medical or dental procedure is payable by you to the hospital or the dental practice, in local currency. Prices given to you in New Zealand or other currencies are close to the local currency equivalent as of the date they are notified, or displayed on the Medication Tours website, but the rate of exchange may alter between the date of purchase and the time of the surgery. An increase in the value of the New Zealand dollar relative to the local currency will reduce the price of the surgery in New Zealand dollar terms. A reduction in the value of the New Zealand dollar relative to the local currency will increase the cost of the surgery in New Zealand dollar terms.
