Permanent residents in Ecuador can enroll in public healthcare system or get private insurance at any age. The cost for public system is about $80 a month and pre-existing conditions are covered after 2 months. There are public hospitals in major cities and some smaller towns. The quality care may depend on the area but many expats in Ecuador enroll in the system due to low cost.

Expat Healthcare Advice for Loja

I let them know about public and private insurance options. This with chronic conditions should enroll in Ecuadorian IESS public system. But even without insurance the medical care in Ecuador is much more affordable than in the US.

Quality of Healthcare in Surrounding Area

In my area people go for more specialized services to Cuenca which is 4 hrs away. That would be heart surgeries, hip or knee replacements, etc. I would not return to the US for medical care. I believe I get adequate care here. I had an ovarian cyst surgery 2 years ago and I was very pleased with the quality of care in a private hospital.

Prescription Medicines

Pharmacies in Ecuador have most medications. Some like antibiotics and others are available without prescription. I take Eutirox pill for my thyroid and buy it without prescription. The cost is about $2-$3 for a month supply.
