Top 5 Countries for Healthcare

Top 5 Countries for Healthcare

I found this article today on the top 5 countries for healthcare and found it very interesting. Being from Seattle, I always assumed that healthcare in the USA was the best, which is why we pay so much. Turns out that this is not true, USA didn’t even make the top 5 for this list, while Mexico did. I have been in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for 5 years now and have experienced the healthcare first hand. The doctors and dentists here are much happier and seem far more knowledgeable than the care I received in the USA. They take more of a holistic approach here and if they can treat you with a natural remedy, they always do. No pushing pills here. It took me moving to Mexico to realize the inadequacies and huge prices in care back home are not worth it. Hopefully you can learn from this and see that Mexico is one of the best options in the world for retirement. Check out our community for assisted living by clicking HERE.

The Top 5 Countries In Health Care: Low-Cost Prescriptions And Expertise Make For Happy, Healthy Citizens

The top countries in the world for health care all offer totally public, universal systems — with life expectancies that rival, and even trump, the U.S.Fotos GOVBA, CC BY 2.0

Until we’re ready to part with our massive military and widening waistlines, the United States has little hope of making the list of top countries for health care. Our privatized system has yet to live up to the affordability of socialized, single-payer systems, no matter how user-friendly our website is. For a nation that so routinely dominates, the truth is we may have to take a page out of other countries’ books for once.

Last month, International Living released its Global Retirement Index for 2014, a list of countries ranked according to the efficiency of their health care system and how well they make for retirement destinations. Here are the top 5:

5. Mexico

Medical tourism has ballooned south-of-the-border because of the United States’ increasingly high prescription drug costs. Health insurance costs roughly $300 per year in Mexico, with private plans costing more but still far less than what its neighbor to the north charges.

Despite its recent status as the most obese country in the world, Mexico only ranks a handful of places below the U.S. in life expectancy, with female life expectancy still exceeding ours. And if for whatever reason you find yourself in the hospital in Mexico, be grateful you’re only paying $35 for the night, not $1,700like you would in America.

4. Costa Rica

Costa Rica barely edges out the U.S. in its life expectancy, at 76.8 years, but manages to do so with one-seventh the per capita expenditures and a dual public/private system that ensures all citizens can get coverage. Known as caja, the public system of health care in Costa Rica is constantly being upgraded with new equipment, technology, and educated personnel.

Retirees, or pensionados, are entitled to full coverage on medical services provided the beneficiary has a monthly income greater than $1,000, whether it’s from Social Security, disability benefits, a pension, or a similar source. There are no caveats or restrictions set on people because of their age or pre-existing conditions.

3. Malaysia

The public health care system in Malaysia isn’t available to foreigners, but their private system may be just as good. Under the system, doctors’ visits cost $16 and dental appointments cost $9. Their per capita expenditure is actually lower than Costa Rica’s $1,197, at only $645 per person. And the highly affordable insurance premiums make for heavily reduced costs — a generally healthy man in his fifties should expect a yearly premium of $400 to $1,000, depending on his plan.

2. Uruguay

A close runner-up, Uruguay has a health care system that is largely private but with a free public safety net. Patients pay their doctors directly, according to a monthly plan that entitles them to everything from regular check-ups to major surgery. Pre-existing conditions are also a non-issue for seniors, as people aged 60 and up seldom are turned away just because they wish to use the system for its purpose.

Uruguay’s per capita expenditure on health care is also comparatively low, at $1,132 U.S. To put it in perspective, in America that number is $8,233.

1. France

France takes the top spot because of its dual approach to health care. The country has both privatized and publicly available options, which either require patients to pay small, heavily subsidized amounts of money out-of-pocket or rely on the Social Security system to cover the costs.

In France, the lines of communication between physicians and patients are extremely open. The red tape Americans have become accustomed to, further muddled by bickering insurance companies, is replaced by an overabundance of doctors that deal directly with patients and encourage their free choice of health care providers. Now if only they could do something about all those cigarettes

About the Author:

Hello, I am Joshua Ketner (Marketing Director at MXAL). The idea for Mexico Assisted Living started 5 years ago. I was reading news stories on the internet and came across one titled, “Man Outsources Parents.” The title made me laugh a little and I had to read more. It turns out that the man in the story had been searching for assisted living for his parents, but could not afford the costs. So he searched for alternatives and came up with the idea that since companies were outsourcing their call centers and other work to India, that he should look there. India is very well known for producing quality doctors and he found a great place for his parents. The idea stuck with me and it opened my eyes to what I thought was the only problem with his solution, the distance. It made me ask the questions, “could this be done in Mexico?” I have spent the last 5 years working in the adult care industry and living in Mexico to find the answer. MXAL is the culmination of my experiences as a care giver at Aegis of Redmond, Assisted living in Redmond, WA and time working as an advisor at the #1 adult care placement agency in the USA, A Place For Mom. During these last 5 years I have discovered all of the positives and negatives of Assisted Living in Mexico. I have come to the conclusion that the positives far outweigh the negatives and have finally decided to open MXAL in Puerto Vallarta. Our community is a partnership with the Las Palmas Hotel in beautiful Puerto Vallarta . We have 225 rooms in this beachfront resort. We have 2 huge dining areas that overlook the beach. We have decided to structure our community similar to an all inclusive hotel. We offer 3 meals per day and they are all done in a buffet style. We have master chefs that ensure you have amazing food and are happy to take resident suggestions for meals. For residents with special diet requirements we can prepare whatever is needed. We have an activity director that makes sure our residents are entertained and never bored. Residents can participate as much or as little as they like. Our experience in senior care has us focused on stimulating our residents to continue to learn and use their brains. This is the best way to avoid Alzheimer’s or dementia. Puerto Vallarta offers so much to our residents. There are thousands of restaurants, costco, walmart, grand shopping malls, jungle adventures, fishing and so much to explore. You will not be disappointed by how much we offer and at such a great price!
