Are healthcare and health insurance expensive in Panama City?

Answer this Question

When we asked expats in Panama City if healthcare and health insurance are expensive in Panama City, they wrote...

"We compared 5 different plans on pricing, deductible, co-pay. Out-of-pocket, coverage, network doctors, specialist and hospital and the more advantageous plan was Cigna International for a worldwide coverage except USA (you can include the USA but like all the other plans, you will pay more). We had a bad experience with Blue Cross Blue Shield Panama with months of waiting for payments that was less than expected since complicated contract was difficult to understand. We are now with Cigna International and we pay just a little bit more per month than BCBS but claim refunds takes about one to two weeks with no questions asked besides sending your doctors bills, pharmacy bills, hospital bills, etc using their App. ," said another in Panama City, Panama.

"Healthcare and health insurance in Panama City can be expensive, depending on the type of coverage and services needed. Private health insurance plans are available, but they can be costly and may not cover all medical expenses. Public health insurance is also available, but it may not cover all medical expenses either. In general, healthcare costs in Panama City are higher than in other parts of the country, but they are still relatively affordable compared to other countries," explained one expat who made the move to Panama City, Panama.
