drivers license other than Panamanian. It says that you may drive on your home
country license for 90 days....no extensions!

Artículo 110. Los extranjeros que ingresen a la República de Panamá en
calidad de turistas, no
podrán obtener licencia ni permiso de conducir y solamente podrán conducir
vehículos con
licencia vigente de su país de origen por un periodo de noventa (90) días. Los
mismos tampoco

STROKE IDENTIFICATION

Health Insurance During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone
that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) .she said she had
just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she
appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the
evening.

Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken
to the hospital - (at 6:00 pm Jane passed away.) She had
suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of
a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die.. They end
up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

Will my US/Canada Life Policy Pay?

Life InsuranceThe standard USA/Canada life insurance contract has only a few major exclusions. There are no geographical restrictions, but some companies may exclude death as a result of war, hazardous activity, failure to pay the premium or aviation. For the beneficiary to be paid, a valid certificate of death/proof of death and return of the original policy is all that is needed to receive the benefits. You may die in Manchuria or on the moon, as long as you obtain a valid death certificate. Some local Panama companies will even advance a small amount ($2,000) to the beneficiary to help with funeral expenses based on a newspaper article.

Confusion may stem from Expats residing in Panama who wish to APPLY for life insurance in the USA. Some US/Canada companies do not wish to issue a NEW policy to foreign residents.

Panama VA Benefits!

Health InsuranceHere is an interesting exchange on the ExpatHealth Yahoo Group, between Craig Morrissey, Executive VP of Hospial Nacional and a veteran asking about VA Benefits in Panama:

Sorry, I just joined the group and I'm sure this has been discussed, but I'm
a Vet with VA benefits (not Tricare). We were told by Mae Lewis Hospital in
David via email that I could transfer my VA benefits to that hospital.
Unfortunately, before sitting down with them, we rented a house in David.
Now after meeting with them last week I'm not sure what we have!
They referred me to someone in Panama City, close to Hospital Nacional that
has told me he can help.
Can anyone give me some insight as to the real situation in Panama?
Thank you,
Jeff

Panama Health Insurance Update!

Health InsuranceExcellent International Health Insurance coverage is available to protect you in the Republic of Panama. Injury or illness in a country far from home can be a very scary experience. If you are without proper health insurance or cannot demonstrate liquidity to a local hospital, it can be the difference between life and death. Expats.....lying on a gurney in a hallway, have DIED waiting for treatment, while proof of ability to pay is confirmed.

Check the exclusions in your current HOME COUNTRY health policy to make sure you are covered outside their borders. In case of an emergency in Panama, note the telephone #'s to call for coordination of benefits, usually found on the back of your insurance ID card. Most USA issued PPO plans will only protect you for a limited time (30 days) for emergencies or while on a Cruise ship/organized tour.........
