Evaluating my options here. For ages 70-80 it's 7650 pesos for 2017. Is this worth while? I guess it depends on each persons needs, usage and alternatives. Comments?

I would not use it in an emergency. There are long wait times, and if it is urgent, they give you an appointment, and then you wait. Better off just paying a doctor each time you need medical attention.  There are a few good ones locally in San Carlos.

I think that the health care service that is appropriate for residents of Mexico who are not employed is Seguro Popular.  I have been enrolled for over a year, and I have regular apts with a GP to monitor several conditions that I have, I get regular blood tests and urinalises every 6 months, either no cost, or low cost.  I have seen a specialist and can get urgent care at the General Hospital in Guaymas or anywhere else.  I think it is pretty darned good health care and reasonable access.  In my case it makes sense to combine Seguro popular and self insurance.

I employed large numbers of people in Mexico for years, and after that experience, I only used private doctors and facilities.

It seems I didn't even know what to ask about. I've used everything from Similare doctors to CIMA.

Like many Americans who live down here, I am on Medicare and am very pleased with Medicare. I've recently heard horror stories about the huge costs at Mexican hospitals like Cima. So, I've decided to focus my planning on getting a policy for emergency transport from Guaymas to a Tucson hospital.
