Exploring a country like Mexico not only sounds alluring but is in fact a unique and invigorating experience. The country shares its borders with the United States which makes it a frequent traveling spot for US residents. Whether you are on a short family vacation or on a long business trip, one thing that you must be sure to have is Medical Insurance coverage
Casualties may arise at any time and one must be prepared to deal with it. Medical insurance coverage helps you be prepared for any accidents or illnesses and it ensures that you do not have to face huge healthcare costs. Especially while you are traveling, an additional medical expense can disrupt your entire budget.
Mexico does have its own National healthcare system but it only covers the medical expenses for those who pay into the system (Mexicans or immigrants). Moreover, the country does not have any reciprocal medical care arrangements with foreign countries and so the tourists have to make specific provisions for their medical needs.
Original Standard Medicare A and B do not offer any coverage for you. However Medicare Advantage and Supplement Plans are accepted in Mexico through Lakeside Medical Group
A very convenient and cost-effective way to tackle an emergency medical situation is to use your existing US Medical insurance. Your US Medical Insurance may consist of provisions and covers that can come handy when you are on a trip. Certain health insurance providers offer travel health insurance coverage also which is valid in some of the hospitals and clinics in Mexico. So, before going out on a trip it is advisable that one must obtain appropriate details to best understand the coverage of their existing US Medical Insurance.
While there are a few options for foreigners to obtain an insurance coverage for healthcare expenses in Mexico the best option is to see if your existing US Health Insurance is accepted in Mexico. Nobody likes to bear an additional cost, especially that of an event that may or may not occur.
