Latin America is made up of a number of different countries, each of which has its own unique healthcare systems, practices, and more.
Generally speaking, the region's healthcare services tend to be more affordable than in other parts of the world, such as the US, France, Germany, UK, etc. But if you are a non-citizen, such as an expat or traveler from a different country, then it is imperative to fully know what you are likely to encounter if you ever need medical treatment and what the benefits of securing an international health plan or travel insurance plan are.

Is international health insurance necessary for expats and travelers in Latin America?
The answer is a BIG yes! Expats and travelers in Latin America typically do not have the same access and privilege to free or subsidized medical treatment as local citizens. Thus, you’ll likely be told to pay in full or at an even higher price than locals.
Hence, you are better off securing international health insurance for the Latin American country you plan to work and live in or travel to as a visitor. Suppose something suddenly happens to your health, and you require immediate medical assistance. In that case, you can rest assured that treatment is possible at the nearest in-network healthcare provider.
And depending on your insurer, you may be offered value-added options, such as direct billing. This means the healthcare provider will send the bill directly to your insurer for payment, and you won’t have to deal with any paperwork, or at least make a minimal effort while you focus on your recovery.
