What are medical services in Lake Chapala like?

When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Lake Chapala, they replied:

"We chose to self-insure in Mexico for now, but we still have Medicare in the USA just in case....," commented one expat living in Lake Chapala, Mexico.

"We are ground zero here for healthcare, two brand new hospitals, one upgraded reciently, Dr.'s make house calls, it's beyond increadable. A friend of ours just had an hip injury corrected with a hip ball and socket replacement for $11,000.00 USD," added another expat.

"New local hospital has an agreement with most USA plans to cover emergency and urgent care. Excellent doctors available, most speak English, within a day or two of request," commented one expat who moved to Lake Chapala.
