Health Care in the Leon area

New Topic Newest First

Can expats/tourists receive good health care in the Leon area and is it a pay as you go service for the walk in clinics as well as the major hospitals?
I understand there are some global health insurance companies that offer monthly plans, are there any recommendations?
Does one need to be vaccinated in order to receive health care/surgeries/medical procedures in the hospitals in the country?

I agree with the advice to consider using Hospital Vivian Pellas in Managua for critical healthcare. Look for a local doctor that speaks English for routine healthcare.

My wife had critical care for atrial fibrillation at Hospital Vivian Pellas, and we were very satisfied with their service. However she ended up needing cardiac ablation, which they were not equipped to perform. We went to a Johns Hopkins related hospital in Panama for that procedure. Also very good care there (my granddaughter also had cardiac surgery there.)

Hospital Vivian Pellas has a discount program for their services, not really "health insurance". We joined the discount program since we have needed their services periodically.

We are in our early 70's - we previously had international health insurance, but premiums increased every year while in our 60's and it became excessively costly or unavailable when we turned 70. We have Medicare in the USA, so we could return there for hospital care if desired.

Most medications can be obtained without a written prescription (excluding opioids).
