According to a survey by International Living, expats can find excellent quality healthcare in Mexico at prices as low as 50% or less compared to the United States. Quality, accessibility and affordability of healthcare are top three factors due to which expat numbers are on the rise in the country. The long U.S border also allows retirees to take advantage of the US Medicare system in Mexico.
Almost every city in Mexico has first-rate hospital with well-trained, English speaking doctors. Common prescription drugs are also easily available in the country and most pharmacy chains have an adjacent doctor office for free medical advice.
