The blog keeps me pretty busy and I get between 10-20 emails from readers a day. At least one or more of those emails contains questions directly related to healthcare here in Mexico.
Here are a few examples:
Can a foreigner join the public healthcare system in Mexico? If so, how much is it?
What’s the difference between the two public insurance systems (IMSS and Seguro Popular)?
Does the public healthcare system cover preexisting conditions?
What is the quality of medical care like in Mexico?
Can you tell me about all the possible insurance options (e.g. international plans, traveler’s insurance and emergency air evacuation)?
Are there assisted living communities in Mexico?
I could keep listing questions all day, but I think you get the point — I get a lot of questions!
Since I strive to keep my blog articles to a palatable 600-word or less format, I would have to write a lot of articles to cover every health-related topic that people ask me about. For those readers who don’t want to wait for me to do that, there is a solution:
The English Speaker’s Guide to Medical Care in Mexico (4th Edition)
I recently obtained a copy of this 256 page guide and I was immediately impressed by the level of research and preparation that went into it. I could use this single reference guide to answer every single medical-related question that I have ever been asked — and that’s saying a lot!
Clearly written with the layperson in mind, the guide is an easy read and is perfect for people thinking of making the move to Mexico. The digital version of the book contains numerous internal and external links that make it a breeze to navigate.
The guide, written by Monica Rix Paxson, is sold through Amazon. Click HERE to go to the page.
Let’s Wrap This Up
When it comes to healthcare in Mexico, there is a lot of misinformation out there. The author of this guide does a wonderful job of separating fact from fiction and provides a mountain of accurate information. I would have to write a hundred blog articles to cover all of the information in this book.
I want to add that I wasn’t paid for this recommendation and that I won’t make a penny from the sales — that should tell you how impressed I was with this guide.
