IMSS in PV for Doctors appointment

End of July - Paradise Village Marina in Puerto Vallarta Mexico

IMSS 07302013

THE IMSS clinic is at the end of the road. It is actually a little square and not a dead end.

Among other things there is a good butcher shop, fruit stand and taco shop nearby.
We did another trip to IMSS today to get our health care. This time we saw a doctor and she was real nice. She gave us the once over with a fiscal and pronounced us health. We are that. Then we got appointments for Lab work and X rays and heart and other electronics. They got to check under the hood.
 This coverage is for me a 66 years old $303.00 USD a year. Cover health, operations and all doctor stuff. IMSS Covers eyes and dental also.
It is a vested plan and after two years you are fully vested. So say after one year I am eligible for a hernia operation and other items. But not till I have been in the plan for one year. Most basic stuff is cover right away.
We have dock mates that have private insurance and pay more for one month than I do for a year and they are younger. The can also go to any of the fancy hospitals close.  I will need to go to a clinic and get an appointment to see a doctor. No phoning in. The clinics are clean but not fancy. The health care is top notch though.

  1. I've read that medical care is much cheaper in Mexico than in the U.S., and the doctors about as good because many of them were schooled and trained in the U.S.
