Just go home from a 30 hour stay at Hospital Espcialdes with a lower GI infection. Dr Molina and other Drs speak very good English and the nurses are very attentive and kind and progessional. a RAVE for all.

Overnight at hospital that included ALL services, total everything: Hospital room and all services, Doctors, many IVS and antibiotics and oral meds: out the door for 16,400 MXP. Lab work 2,000 pesos addtil and Prescriptions 2,00 (not all prescriptions needed as I had them at home).

A real bargain and care every bit as good as back in U.S. at a fraction of the cost (overnight stays thru emergency room and overnight in U.S. hospital would run $5,000 USD, been there and done that.

Where is Dr. Molina and where is the hospital located? Hope we don't need it, but just in case.

And my post should have said raves, not rabes.

Assuming you are coming from the airport go to the intersection where a Bus station is on you left and a traffic light, there is a pedestrian elevated walkway over Hiway 200 and a Pemex station on your right. Turn right, up the hill almost to the top just before the "T: intersection, turn into parking lot. Helpful?

Good to hear you got through that OK. I know that Medicare won't cover expenses outside the US, but does supplemental insurance? We always buy travel insurance but, fortunately, have never had the need to find out how well it works.

Some supplements have a wide range of coverage outside U.S. My "Supplement" is Tri Care for Life (retired military) and in the U.S. covers all Medicare deductibles and copays (seamlessly). Outside U.S. they pay 75% but I have to pay the bill myself and then submit receipts for reimbursement.

We also have been to this hospital, with excellent outcomes. Dear hubby parted with his gall-bladder there about 3-4 years ago. He was well attended. It was not "inexpensive"- 40,000 pesos- but included everything in the hospital-drugs, tests, the surgery, 3 overnights, and the return visit to check & remove a couple of stitches. The surgery itself was done "laparoscopic" -just as it would have been done in Canada.

To us in U.S. 40,000 would be a gift. True, the medical providers often "bill" one amount but often settle for half that amount from Medicare and other insurance plans.

Please correct me if I am in error but in Canada a major portion of medical costs are paid by the government single payer plan.

Not to start an argument but for me 40,000 is a bargain.

$40,000.00 pesos would be a bargain in Canada also, but most people never see the cost as the bill is paid by the government. There is very little Canadians have to pay for when it comes to medical.

In Canada the medical is paid by the "people" who pay taxes to the government so I would suggest that the people pay for the medical.

You are absolutely correct in saying the people pay for the medical in a round about way. The thing is everybody is covered, if they pay taxes or not.

We had no problem with the cost for hubby's care.
