Costa Rica has some of the greatest healthcare in Latin America. The health system consists of Medical Treatment (disease and pregnancy) and Compulsory Pension (disability, old age and death).
In Costa Rica, private insurance or a health plan are available. Additionally, private insurance policies are offered through the state-owned insurance business (INS). Dental work, optometry, well-visits, and yearly check-ups are all covered under private policies. Prescription medicines, some medical examinations, sick visits, and hospitalization are reimbursed at 80% of the cost. Costs associated with the surgeon and aesthetician are fully covered. Private medical insurance now costs between $60 and $130 per month per individual, depending on gender, age, and other factors.
