Press Release Summary: Healthbase has partnered with a JCI accredited Costa Rican
Hospital to bring more cost-effective and convenient choices to uninsured Americans
for their health care requirements.

Press Release Body: Boston-based medical tourism facilitator, Healthbase Online
Inc., and Hospital Clinica Biblica of Costa Rica have partnered to provide low cost
high quality health care services to uninsured, underinsured and even insured
Americans. The expertise of Healthbase as an award-winning medical tourism operator
and the 79-year experience of the JCI (Joint Commission International) accredited
Costa Rican hospital at serving international patients make first-class medical care
immediately accessible to Americans and Canadians at affordable prices.

According to Saroja Mohanasundaram, the CEO of Healthbase, "We are constantly
looking to expand our provider network so we can offer a wider selection to our
global medical consumers. As always, we like to bring aboard any hospital which has
value for our customers in terms of significant cost savings and is at the same time
a world-class provider of health care services so our customers can get top quality
healthcare at a considerably lower price. Clinica Biblica Hospital meets both these
conditions, has the infrastructure to serve foreign patients and is safe for our
customers to travel to. This, together with our award-winning medical tourism
website and our remarkable customer service make it very easy and convenient for
medical tourists to plan and arrange their medical treatments overseas."
Healthbase's network of health care service providers is spread in India, Singapore,
Thailand, Turkey, Belgium, Hungary, Panama, Costa Rica and Mexico.

Mr. Brad Cook, the Director of International Department at Clinica Biblica Hospital
says, "World-class medical care means little if unaffordable or too far away. Our
hospital offers patients a wide variety of leading-edge medical procedures and
treatments at affordable prices, yet is located just two and a half hours from
Miami. We are very excited about partnering with Healthbase, and allowing more
patients to experience the quality of care available at Clinica Biblica Hospital."

Hospital Clinica Biblica is the first hospital in the region to be accredited by
JCI. JCI accreditation assures that the care and treatment provided by Hospital
Clinica Biblica is on par with top American and European hospitals.

The proximity of Costa Rica to North America makes Hospital Clinica Biblica a very
suitable choice for medical conditions and surgery requiring quick access to medical
care. Additionally, the exotic natural attractions in Costa Rica make medical and
dental care coupled with a vacation a very attractive package.

The partnership between Healthbase and Hospital Clinica Biblica brings convenient
top-notch healthcare options to the doorstep of North Americans.
