It's not easy to move to a new country, especially if you are an expat least prepared for what staying in that country is all about. While you may be able to adapt to the new lifestyle sooner or later, you cannot afford to be ignorant about your health. You need to be well-prepared because an illness can come knocking on your door when you least expect it.
If Mexico is the country you are moving to, you must know that it is a huge draw for visitors and expats alike. It is known for its rich culture, natural beauty, and relatively inexpensive lifestyle. What's more; even the healthcare system in Mexico is pretty robust and easily accessible.
So what's the glitch you may ask?
Well, healthcare is fairly affordable in Mexico and it offers the very best in treatments and facilities to its people through public as well as private healthcare services. It's easier for expats however to stick around with private healthcare services since they are easier to access and the doctors who are usually trained in the USA or Europe speak English.
Not to mention the relatively less waiting time in private hospitals. Private healthcare is the preferred option for those who want better infrastructure and specialized services.
