Can anyone offer advice on private medical health insurance in Brazil? I know that there is some public health available, but believe that this is quite basic. My wife (who is Brazilian) and I are thinking about moving to live there in the near future, and she received a quote for me of $R 1,200 per month! I am in my 50's with no medical problems, fit and a non-smoker. Can anyone recommend or suggest any companies?
spen007 replied on April 15, 2014 with:
Depends on where you plan to live. Good companies are UNIMED & Amil. Your monthly payment should be approx. R$600,00 +/-. Hope this helps. Good luck!
BeachBoy replied on April 15, 2014 with:
BritAbroad, I think the premium costs here are pretty well linked to the level of coverage for the policy. R$1200($540.)/month for a male your age does not sound out of line, if it is complete coverage.

Moving to Brazil. Here in the U.S. you have to establish a Primary Care Doctor and THEY give a referral for specialty providers. Specifically, physical therapy; Can I just go find a physical therapist or do I have to establish care with a primary care doctor first?
BeachBoy replied on April 15, 2014 with:
Without insurance you can go to whichever provider you desire. With insurance, I expect that you would have to stay within the providers who are linked to your insurance.

FelipeG replied to the thread Brazilian legal help/advice for an American?? on the Brazil forum:

Hello, Not sure if this is the best site for this request but at least this one is in english as that is all that I speak. I desperately need advice/contact with english speaking Brazilian lawyers who can assist my prison penpal who is currently in a US prison. From what I have discovered in the past few years of trying this, the Brazilian legal system is more or less whatever you can afford to pay for and has little to do with any law. I could be wrong but since I get a different answer depending on who I talk to, it seems that way. Very briefly, my friend is a Brazilian citizen who is being held in a US prison under a Venezuelan alias name and nationality. The Brazilian consulate here has identified him as a Brazilian but they seen lost or ineffective as to how to have the US Justice system accept his true identity. It almost seems like the Brazilian consulate is afraid of the US and simply accepts what they say. After years of this, I am trying to get him legal contacts in Brazil who may be able to actually assist him in getting his identity corrected. Any advice would be very much appreciated as the consulates and Brazilian government websites offer no help.

We are thinking about somewhere a comfortable distance outside Brasilia. Low crime, amenities, cleanliness would be top of the list. Any suggestions for a nice town to live just outside of?

Try to locate a church with Jehovah Witnesses, talk to them they will try to help you out. If you need to have the fund send to a witness, you can trust them. Of course there always bad apple, but it worth to try it. Boa sorte !

ccsaffer posted Cultural Help on the Brazil forum on April 07, 2014:
I recently moved back from the US to Brasil. I have been away for 24 years. Arriving in São Paulo was very hard for my three kids and I. Having said that, given that I am a psychologist I started working for a firm that provides Intercultural Psychology. Please let me know if I can be of any help to you and your Family. I am also starting a working parenting group based on the book How to Talk to your kids so they Will Listen. I beleive we should all get together as parents and help each other as well as our kids. Brazil is a wonderful place do not be discouraged just yet. Moving is never easy and you are certainly not on your own. Kind Regards and please feel free to be in touch ccsaffer@outlook.com

gringosp replied to the thread Creative Writing Workshop Group in Sao Paulo on the Brazil forum:
rossiter27 initially posted:
Hi Everyone! I'm a native English speaker here in Sao Paulo, and I write short stories when I'm not at my day job as a financial journalist. I'm keen to start a meet-up group here in Sao Paulo that meets once every two weeks, or maybe once a month where native English speakers who are creative writers can meet and help workshop each others' work. It'll also be a good chance to meet other creative writers in the city, and help exchange ideas as well as meet new people. Anyone in Sao Paulo interested??
gringosp replied on April 05, 2014 with:
Hi Everyone, Following up Rossiter's message in 2011, I am also looking for creative writers to form a writers group to meet regularly in São Paulo and organize open mic readings. Sounds cool? Let us know here! David

Hello there, I saw your post on this website for creative writing, however (sorry) but I am more interested in the fact you mention you're in financial journalism. I work in London as head of small research business and we're looking for someone in Sao Paulo to potentially assist with producing some writing and research on the domestic Brazil market. These are my contact details if you could please contact me at your earliest convenience and we can discuss further.
