As a foreigner living in Tijuana, will I have access to public healthcare? What is it like?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in Tijuana if they have access to public healthcare in Tijuana. And, if they do have access, what is it like. They wrote...

"I believe there is a public healthcare system for Mexican citizens, but I don't think it covers foreigners. Most people I have met seeking Mexican medical care travel to Mexico either because they can't afford care in the US or are seeking treatment that is inferior in the US. Most are paying out of pocket rather than through insurance, as Mexican care often costs less than the insurance would cost. Most visit clinics rather than hospitals, by researching the individual practitioners. Thus I have heard little about the quality of hospital care," remarked another expat in Tijuana, Mexico.

"Yes, as a foreigner living in Tijuana, you will have access to public healthcare. The public healthcare system in Tijuana is generally considered to be of good quality, with many hospitals and clinics offering a wide range of services. However, it is important to note that the public healthcare system in Mexico is not free, and you will need to pay for any services you receive. Additionally, the public healthcare system in Mexico is not as well-funded as in other countries, so it is important to be aware of the limitations of the system," said a member in Tijuana, Mexico.
