What are medical services in San Miguel de Allende like?

When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in San Miguel de Allende, they replied:

"Expat healthcare insurance for age 60+ is expensive and not great. To me, not worth it. Also Rx pain meds and psych meds extremely expensive & very difficult to legally obtain," stated one expat who made the move to San Miguel de Allende.

"I don't need traditional medical services, so I have limited experience. But my friends who do use it say that it is MUCH more affordable than the U.S. and equally as competent," remarked another expat in San Miguel de Allende.
