Re: Travel medical insurance suggestions???

I agree that medical care is amazingly cheap other places. I had a crown come off in Santa Cruz, Ca. Dentists there wanted $350.00 & $400.00 to clean the surfaces, do Xrays, a bunch of other "pad the bill" stuff and glue the crown back on. I got it done in Ensenada, Mexico for $20.00.
My wife had a really complicated problem as a result of an electrical injury. Our Mexican Dr, in 6 weeks fixed what the US doctors couldn't fix in 6 years. It was 10 visits. It cost us almost $400.00 for the 10 visits INCLUDING THE DRUGS. Now she needs about $120.00 a month's worth of prescriptions rather than $1000.00 a month. Oh, and she lost 20 kilos in 2 months once she got off of the American drugs.
All benefits and no problems.
The guy changed our lives. No bad days anymore.

I use TriCare out of the area in the States. Most of the other countries it is easier to pay in cash and update my record when I get a chance.
