Medicare in Mexico

el faro condos - beach club

Apart from all the great Real Estate Deals in Playa del  Carmen we try always to  keep our eyes open for more  helpful information about living and investing in Mexico.

Yesterday we cam across an email from Deanne, one of our  Realtor Colleagues here in town and what she said, was  definitely interesting and I am sure it is worth digging into  some more background information about this interesting  news.

When thinking about Medicare, Mexico has lots of surprising facts to offer. More than just Sun, Beach and Margaritas, which usually helps to cure most problems, but not all of course 😉

Here is what she wrote : Another great reason to live here part time or retire  here!
Expats can easily qualify for Mexico’s special government sponsored health insurnace program reducing the average US citizens insurance expenditure by thousands of Dollars each year.

Americans may be able to use their Medicare and Medicaid insurance to access Mexico health care within one year, reported Bloomberg news yesterday.

The move would make Mexico real estate even more attractive to Americans looking to buy homes and retire south of the border.

Bruno Ferrari, chief executive officer of Promexico, Mexico’s foreign investment agency, told the news service that “authorities are interested” in the idea.

He said ten US and Canadian companies have shown an interest in building Mexico health care facilities for Americans looking for low cost treatment.

With the US health care debate heating up, the Mexican health care system is hitting the headlines and more Americans are opting for ‘medical tourism’.

“This would be a great opportunity for the industry in this country … There are developers interested in creating new cities,” said Ferrari.

According to Promexico, some forms of health care in the US can cost 12 times as much as in Mexico.

Figures from the US Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services predict total spending by the insurance programs will amount to $889.1 billion in 2009, about a third of all health care spending in the US.

Some are surprised by the extremely high standards of health care in Mexico, but when they realize that many of the top Mexican medical staff are trained in US universities and hospitals, the reasons become obvious.

Many health insurance companies already offer policies to foreigners buying homes in Mexico and the Mexican government’s IMSS health care program is also available with excellent basic cover at a very low price.

Just imagine the most amazing beach with the most unbelievable tones of blue and turquoise in the caribbean waters, a few really simple beach clubs, good ceviche, a metal bucket with lots of ice and cold corona beer, only a few tourist and a lot of sun and blue sky. Actually, just check out this picture, than you know what i am talking about.

Xpu Ha is just 10 miles south of Playa del Carmen and there are only small, almost hidden access roads towards the beach.

You will have to pay a small fee to enter the properties and drive down a dirt road until you get to the beach club, there are actually 2-3 of them to choose. The same bay has small boutique hotels like El Cielo and Esencia, where travelers from all over the world enjoy the relaxed and private atmosphere. O r just click on the picture.

One of the bets things to do there is to rent a snorkel equipment and swim out just a 100 meter to one of the most beautiful coral reefs in the Riviera Maya. You will find amazing underwater landscapes and a wide array of different fishes in all colors you can imagine. Very untouched and even better if you like to explore a bit more, there is a ecopark close by where you can snorkel in a lagoon as well.

There is actually no real estate available for sale in this particular area, but actually, that is a good thing, considering, the beauty and remoteness of this secret location 🙂
