The quality of healthcare is of the most critical things people should consider before moving abroad, especially retirees. But how is the healthcare abroad? Here’s an article by Chuck Bolotin that gives some answers that may surprise you.
One of the biggest concerns about moving to a Central American country or Mexico is the quality of health care.
To determine if this objection and others is valid, in late April, Best Places In The World To Retire conducted a survey primarily of expats from the U.S. and Canada who were living in Panama, Belize and Nicaragua. The survey had a margin of error of +/- 5%.
In Expats: Expectations & Reality, 31% of the respondents reported that they thought they could achieve “better access to less expensive, quality healthcare” by moving abroad. In a subsequent question, 42.6% reported that this was the reality. Separately, Best Places In The World To Retire, collected data from over 450 expats, who answered more than 6,000 questions.

For almost any health-related measure, it would be difficult to argue that the U.S. is not among the most advanced nations with the most high tech equipment in the world, especially when it comes to very specialized research and care. Most people would say that Central America and Mexico are far, far behind.
