Key features of INDIGOMED
Cost-effective / high-quality
Thanks to INDIGOMED, patients can obtain, on average, a 35% to 50% reduction in medical expenses compared with costs in the US, with NO LOSS in medical quality, innovation and technology. The hospitals and professionals belonging to the INDIGOMED network represent the best of European medicine: the most highly qualified specialists and the best hospitals in Europe (Italy, Germany, Spain and France).
We can offer less expensive treatments because European costs for medical care are substantially lower than the US. Because the EU’s objective has always been to reduce inequalities in health care, huge investments are made in the health sector by European governments to reduce medical costs for patients.
Smart health care spending doesn’t mean spending more.
Care continuum – Global partnership
Treating serious diseases involves long, complex health care processes and interventions from a large number of medical professionals. INDIGOMED guarantees the coordination of local and international professionals with a single objective – cost-effective quality patient care.
INDIGOMED partners with key organizations in collaborative efforts to offer the best in health care for the benefit of the patients we serve.
A successful medical intervention involves more than the patient, his or her practitioner, and/or an overseas medical provider.

INDIGOMED is the only platform that specializes in rare diseases. Families often feel lost and adrift when the diagnosis is a rare disease. Please note that European doctors do not always use the same drugs to treat the same diseases as do their counterparts in the US. Rare diseases such as Bartter’s syndrome, macular corneal dystrophy (MCD), Tay-Sachs disease, Huntington’s disease, dilated cardiomyopathy with ataxia (DCMA), to name a few, may require a second opinion, either to choose a more cost-effective quality of care or to improve the existing treatment plan.
