MEXICO

Mexico’s national healthcare system is made up of two primary paths. The IMSS system is part of the national Social Security process and was designed for employees across the country. Employees and employers are mandated to contribute to the IMSS plan every month and those funds are augmented by funds from the Federal Government. Expats, those who hold either Temporary or Permanent residency status, are also permitted to apply for the IMSS program under the voluntary participation process. Currently, participation costs about $40 per month, per person which is more good news, for sure. The bad news is that many pre-existing conditions will prohibit you from participating in the IMSS program. Such conditions include but are not limited to cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and addictions.
