Those living in Mexico as an expat would know how exciting life can be. Mexico is an eclectic mix of the new and the old, and for many, life here is nothing short of an adventure. Of course, there are the usual rules and protocols, but the cost of living is fairly affordable especially if you compare it to the USA. If you are here for the long haul, you need to factor in the healthcare cost too.

A brief overview

Well, what you need to understand is that the public health service here does not have reciprocal agreements with other countries nor does it allow you to use your existing US Medicare. So if there is an accident or a medical emergency, you should be willing to pay out-of-pocket. It's no secret that medical expenses can burn a hole in your pocket. You should know the options available to you before you decide to move to Mexico. If you are traveling to Mexico only for a short visit, you must still check the fine print of your current healthcare plan to ensure that you are indeed covered in Mexico.

For longer stays, you may want to consider having a private health insurance policy that takes care of all your medical needs. You may also want to consider having an evacuation plan in case you need to be flown back to your home country in case of emergencies. 

Know your options

You may apply for IMSS, the Mexican public healthcare insurance system on a voluntary basis to get adequate coverage and access to primary care and clinics across Mexico. The standard factors such as age, health history, etc. will of course come into play. It's important to note here that those who are covered under the plan through an employer are given priority over those who opt for it voluntarily. Alternatively, you can opt for private medical insurance too that can give you access to myriad hospitals, doctors, and clinics in Mexico. Individual plans, family plans, and many other customized plans are available for consideration. But then, you need to weigh your choices carefully especially if you are living there as an expat.
