We very much apologize for the pricing delay for CCSVI Liberation in Costa Rica. The hospital has been working very dilligently to coordinate fees from the multi-disciplinary team. The final price for CCSVI Liberation in Costa Rica is $10,500 US dollars plus the cost of the hotel and flight . We have chosen not to package the procedure and hotel together after talking to many clients and due to the many variables involved: some are choosing to come earlier or stay longer, some require single and some double-occupancy, etc. We strongly suggest clients let us book the hotel for them to ensure proper coordination while in Costa Rica though. With a credit card number, we can simplify the process and book the hotel for you, alleviating any additional stress. We prefer our patients stay at a specific hotel, Casa Conde, as it has been specifically chosen for this procedure, and we can ensure you are booked into the appropriate accomodations at the hotel.
Casa Conde has excellent facilities at reasonable rates, is a 4* recovery retreat with a nurse on duty 24 hours per day, has an entire building set aside specifically for CCSVI Liberation patients, and is located very close to Hospital Clinica Biblica which makes transporation and rehabilitation therapy convenient. The cost of this hotel is $98 US dollars per night plus tax (13%) and includes breakfast daily for 2; this is a discounted rate over the hotel's rack rate. There is a meal plan available for lunch and dinner, or meals can be purchased directly from the restaurant at the hotel.
The package will include:
* airport pickup and drop-off by an English-speaking host
* assistance with check-in at the hotel
* transportation between all medical appointments
* all testing prior to surgery including blood tests, EKG, MRV, Doppler ultrasound, venography
* consultation with an internal medicine specialist and a neurologist
* CCSVI Liberation Treatment
* 2 nights in a hospital room
* 10 days of rehabilitation therapy designed to reduce post-operative stress and increase blood flow affected by CCSVI
* wheelchair accessible transportation and accomodations are available
Additional details are now available on our FAQS link at: www.passportmedical.com/2010/05/ccsvi-l ... osta-rica/ which is being updated frequently. Specifically, you can find new information on:
* the length of stay in Costa Rica as opposed to other destinations for CCSVI
* the rehabilitation program
* issues of insurance
In addition, many have been asking about possible tours during their stay in Costa Rica. We need to remember that the primary purpose of this trip is medical, and our aim is to ensure the highest chance of success from this procedure. Tours should be discussed with the medical team at Hospital Clinca Biblica for their suitability. If tours are deemed suitable, we work directly with Tropical Expeditions who will be providing all your transportation while in Costa Rica. You can learn more about them and the tours they provide at: www.www.tourismandhealthcostarica.com/index.html . They are creating specific tours for our CCSVI Liberation patients which will take you beyond the limits of the city to experience the real beauty of Costa Rica. Many tours and attractions will be wheelchair accessible.
Finally, we have booked our first month of patients for CCSVI Liberation at Hospital Clinica Biblica. We will be focussing a great deal of our attention on these clients in the coming weeks to ensure a seamless medical experience. We will then begin booking dates for both screened and non-screened patients through the summer and into Fall. As we begin the next booking phase, we will be able to better estimate treatment dates for those on our registration list.
