    Default Health Insurance

    Those of you that live in/stay for extended amount of time in the DR, which insurance company to you use? Any thoughts for me? I'll be here until at least the end of September. I did look online before I came here but was slightly confused and therefore, did what I do best, and procrastinated. BMI, Palic, ARS Humano? Pros and cons?

    Mpjuly is on the money, I pay $500 USD per year. Spent 2 nights in the hospital and saw a Heart Specialist and another specialist, cost me 66 pesos. Humano, call 809-757-0851 and ask for Jeannette Ogando. Lovely lady.
    Tell her Geraldine sent you.

    I buy mine in Canada. It works out to about 3 dollars a day for 2 people. Full coverage including Air Evac to Canada. I buy it from Intact Insurance. The product name is Travelwell. Not sure where you are from but similar products are probably available in the US and Europe

    ARS Palic - just under $1,000 US a year for a person over 50 - so far so good - have used it more often than I wanted to. Just know that there is a six month waiting period before a serious chronic illnesses is covered. Hopefully nit the case for anyone reading this.

    Universal is slightly better. Humano - the one we have - has a more complicated pre-approval procedure, at least in my experience.

    Ultimately though, they are all crap.
