8. Taiwan

Taiwan's health care facilities adhere to some of the highest standards in the world, which helped it attract 90,000 medical tourists in 2012, according to Patients Beyond Borders. Taiwan has 22 health care facilities certified by Joint Commission International, the U.S.-based quality and safety accrediting organization. That's only 6 fewer than all of China. Major procedures such as a full facelift can be more than 50 percent cheaper in Taiwan than in the U.S.
