The ING major medical policy is for Mexico with emergency coverage when out of Mexico - no matter where in the world - of $50,000USD. Yes that is $50,000USD, not pesos or any other currency. The $50,000 is intended to cover you in an emergency and give you an opportunity to get back to Mexico for primary treatment.
We just paid our annual major medical premium today. I am 64 and paid $13,2740Pesos (IVA included at $1,731Pesos) and my wife, who is 59, paid $10,867Pesos (IVA $1,417Pesos) for a gross annual premium including IVA of $24,141Pesos (or about $2,200USD per annum/$183USD a month) with a $25,000Peso deductible. That is for theĻ"Cliente Especial" coverage which includes a private suite for hospital stays in Guadalajaraīs top hospitals - my choice.
I figure similar coverage in the U.S. would cost me at least six times that much in premiums - probably more - and the hospitals in Guadalajara are a hell of a lot nicer than any hospitals I have seen in the U.S.
If you are interested, my ING agent is Jesus Tejeda Mejorada whose office is in Guadalajara but who comes down to Ajijic at my convenience for policy renewals. His cell phone # from Ajijic is 01 333 667 0499.
