Health care insurance outside the borders

Nowadays California patients don’t have the luxury of time to wait in line for an appointment with their local HMO doctors, which is why they opt for the convenience of medical travel outside the borders, like the nearby city of Tijuana which Mexican doctors dub as la ola verde, meaning the “green wave” of Southern California residents.

“In Tijuana, I can make an appointment today for tomorrow,” San Diego resident Arturo Chavez explained after switching from a US HMO to one in Tijuana. The change left Chavez’s employer to pay for a plan worth $94 a month, which is $66 less than the previous cost. Chavez’s co-payments went down from $10 to $4. Just like many Californians, Chavez was attracted by the medical and dental care in Tijuana and other border towns because of the easy access to incredible savings, immediate service, and top-notch technology, among others.

Good news to all California residents

With the increasing number of Americans wanting to get medical treatment in Mexico, there has been a combined effort from both countries to enforce quality control. On one hand, there are several Mexican health care providers that offer services based on US standards in every aspect of their operation. On the other hand, California-based health plans note that they meticulously select the Mexican practitioners that their patients can go to. Additionally, California enforces that all patients who seek treatment in Mexico via HMO get equal rights as those who get healthcare services in California.
