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. The medical tourism is increasing each year as more and more patients find out the advantages of coming to Costa Rica.
Costa Rica counts with two medical systems, with expats allowed to access both. First is the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social. This is universal healthcare, provided and managed by the government. It’s available to citizens and legal residents. As part of 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, small clinics, known as EBAIS are 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 it’s still a tiny fraction compared with its US equivalent cost. A general doctor’s visit will cost about $50 and a specialist doctor´s visit will cost around $80 to $100. Exams like ultrasound, x-rays and others will run about $75. And even major surgeries are cheap, about half to a quarter of the cost in 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 Cells treatments are not exception to rule, Costa Rica is a great opportunity to get your stem cell treatment to a very reasonable price compared with the United States.
