I have private insurance with Medicus, one of the top insurance companies here. I had to take it two months prior to getting pregnant to be fully covered. We are paying 168 US or 535 pesos per month.
I was recommended to a obstetrician who specializes in C-sections. I've had only one visit with him, but he made sure to give me his cell phone. I've already had to use it when I had some slight issues. I was able to reach him on a Sunday night, and after a phone consultation, he sent me to the local "sanitario" which admitted me immediately for an ultrasound. I received excellent care and was amazed to be able to get not only my doctor, but actually to have him call and prep the doctor on staff at the sanitario.
