Quality of Healthcare in Surrounding Area
It depends upon how serious. I would prefer to have surgeries done in the US. Initially, however, I would go to Dangriga
or Belize City
In checking with the Pharmacist in Hopkins, I found he could get all my prescription meds. It might take a couple of days, but he assured me he could get them. Additionally, he let me purchase a prescription medication for a rash I got at the beginning of rainy season.
Expat Health Insurance in Belize
In the US I have Medicare and a supplemental insurance, which is fine and I have had no problems with coverage. In Belize, I do not purchase medical insurance because it is very expensive.
