Panama Health Insurance

Health InsuranceAccidental 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 ability to pay at a local hospital, it can mean the difference between life and death. Imagine lying on a stretcher in the hallway, waiting for treatment, while proof of liquidity is confirmed.....many Expats have paid the ultimate price! Excellent Health Insurance coverage is available to protect you in the Republic of Panama.

High quality hospitals, physicians and medical facilities are available in Panama. Most doctors have been trained in the USA, Canada or Europe and speak English. Be Prepared! Private hospitals and medical professionals expect to be paid and will require some guarantee of payment before treatment. It is not uncommon for medical care to be denied by private hospitals. Without financial resources (cash/credit cards) or proper health insurance coverage, you may find yourself transferred from their hospital to a Panama government facility. The public hospitals are adequate, but Panamanian citizens will have priority over your treatment. Here is an example of a visitor "stuck" in Panama with inadequate coverage:

If you have an existing "Home of Origin" health insurance, some of these carriers from the USA, Canada and Europe MAY provide coverage for emergencies while traveling.

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.
