In the past ten years or more, healthcare in Mexico has steadily improved with many hospitals being accredited, doctors and dentists adjusting their practices to allow for foreigners and the building of modern, state-of-the-art facilities.
From high costs to long wait times, thousands of Americans and Canadians flock to receive the healthcare in Mexico that they have put on hold in anticipation of their upcoming Mexico vacation. Others have moved to Mexico because of the availability of affordable healthcare in Mexico including not just surgery but general care, pharmaceuticals, and dental care.
There is an alternative, go to Mexico, a place that will provide you the care you need, with no wait lists, and certified bilingual doctors that have the skills and time to take care of your health, all within clean, modern hospitals. Mexico is a place where you can spend time recovering from surgeries, illness and know that help is right there when you need it. It is a place for rejuvenation, transformation and wellness.
For many, the arrival of the snowbirds, who typically travel from late October to April, marks the beginning of a medical vacation; not a hiatus from care, but a chance to use it. It is the time when all of the prescriptions, dental fillings, and surgeries that were postponed over the course of the year because of costs and insurance limitations in the U.S.and Canada are finally addressed.
Whether you are turning to Mexico for retirement or assisted living, vacation or real estate investment there are great facilities to be found in the popular areas of Mexico including Puerto Vallarta, Playa del Carmen, Lake Chapala, San Miguel de Allende, Los Cabos, Mazatlan and more. As the country continues to grow as one of the top retirement destinations in the world, there are increasingly more facilities of the highest standards being built throughout Mexico, all providing top quality medical and dental care.
Mexico currently has nine facilities accredited through the Joint Commission International, the health care industry’s leading accreditation organization; over 220 facilities are accredited internationally.
Additionally, most major insurers will provide insurance reimbursement for emergency care and treatment for travelers in Mexico.
As such on example is AmeriMed, a Mexican medical care network, has established hospital facilities in Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos and a clinic in Los Barriles. To find out more information on medical insurance visit our partner Novamar.
Dentistry is another health issue for so many people, with increasing costs and major procedures that can be very expensive in the US or Canada. Mexico has excellent dentists who provide implants, dental surgery, and crowns at a fraction of the costs found in Canada or the US. Dental clinics are also very popular for retirees.
Similar to pharmacies, dental clinics in Mexico attract customers primarily because of their prices ($25-35 for cleaning, $10 for x-rays), and also because of the amenities that come with the visit such as English-speaking staff and a transparent price list. It is not uncommon for seniors to wait the entire year to see a dentist in Mexico because it can be thousands of dollars less than in the U.S. and Canada.
