Medical uncertainty can not only be frustrating, but can be a factor of life or death. In both the Canada and Europe, people entitled to free medical care may experience difficulties in arranging medical appointments, and may also have long waiting periods between appointments and procedures. For patients dealing with chronic pain, the wait is simply too long. If your insurance that covers the procedure in your country of origin, contact them to find out about the coverage of the same procedure in Mexico.
It is a common practice for insurance companies to pressure hospitals to discharge patients quickly, sometimes too quickly, all in an effort to reduce costs. At COSTAMED, we make sure that our patients are discharged only when they are ready, and never before. Our employee-to-patient ratio is much higher than the average of many United States hospitals, and our hospital infection rate is much lower.
