More than 40,000 Americans travel each year to Costa Rica to seek medical and dental treatment because of the outstanding reputation of Costa Rica. These “medical tourists” have discovered that this little Central American country has high quality healthcare available at a very low cost compared with their home country. Medical tourism is increasing each year as more and more patients learn about the advantages of coming to Costa Rica.
Costa Rica provides two medical systems and expats are allowed access to both. The first system is the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social. This is universal healthcare, provided and managed by the government. It’s available both to citizens and legal residents. As a member of the Caja, you pay a monthly a fee based on your income. After you pay your monthly fee, all the health care is covered and there are no exclusions for age or pre-existing conditions. The system has an emphasis on preventative care. There are ten major public hospitals – four in San Jose, including the Children’s Hospital – affiliated with the Caja. For non-emergencies and everyday medical care, the Caja has small clinics, known as EBAIS, located in almost every community.
There is also an extensive private medical system in Costa Rica, with doctors, clinics, and hospitals throughout the entire country. You can pay cash to see private providers, but the cost is still a tiny fraction compared to equivalent care in the United States. A general doctor visit will cost about $50 and a specialist doctor visit will range from $80 to $100. Exams like ultrasound and x-rays, will cost about $75. Even major surgeries are cheap comparatively, running half to a quarter of the cost compared the U.S. Due to Costa Rica’s medical reputation, very low costs, and beautiful surroundings, the country is rapidly becoming a prime destination for medical tourism.
You can also use insurance, either international policies or those provided by Costa Rican companies. Most private hospitals have international patient departments to help you arrange financial matters. Stem Cell treatments are no exception.
Costa Rica provides a great opportunity to get your stem cell treatment at a very reasonable price when compared with the United States.
