Advanced Medical Technology and Its Cost

Advanced medical technology such as organ transplantation, cardiac pacemaker implantation, artificial reproductive medicine, molecularly-targeted drugs are costly.

Many patients abandon the therapy because of cost burden. If these costs were compensated by insurance (including public insurance), it would be a great help to the patient and would promote the use of advanced medical technology.

This topic is also connected to the issue of medical tourism.
