India introduces medical visas for foreigners seeking specialty treatment.

India takes the steps to take advantage of escalating price of medical treatment in the West. India is introducing a new visa category for foreigners coming here for long-term medical treatment, a news report said Saturday, as increasing numbers of people stream in from abroad for low-cost health care.

India attracts many foreigners, especially from neighboring countries and the Middle East, who come for low-cost specialty treatment.

The new medical visas will be valid for one year and can be extended for another.

How long before the US passes a law making it a felony to leave the US for medical treatment elsewhere? Any bets on this?
