Snake Bite in Costa Rica

While studying in Costa Rica, a young man was bitten by a poisonous viper. He was taken to a nearby clinic for antivenom and UnitedHealthcare Global was contacted for assistance. Fortunately, the man's vital signs were normal, but he was in terrible pain. UnitedHealthcare Global Physician Advisors consulted with the patient and the treating physician. The man wanted to travel home, but UnitedHealthcare Global physicians realized the risks involved in traveling so soon. After two more days, it was determined that the man could return home. UnitedHealthcare Global worked with the airlines to change the man's plane tickets so he could return home early.
