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

"Yes, healthcare and health insurance in Panama are generally more affordable compared to other developed countries. Costs may vary depending on the type of care and the medical center, but overall, they are more economical than in many Western countries," wrote Moises Alvarado N. from Panama Legal Business (PANLEB).

"Health insurance is not accepted by providers of care. Have Tricare which is military insurance world wide and is part of the Hopkins network so we thought the private hospital that says they are part of Hopkins would accept it. We were sadly mistaken and had the worst experience of our life. If you compare US costs and Panama cost, yes, it is less expensive. But, it is still expensive if you have to pay for surgery before any care is rendered. ," commented one expat who made the move to Coronado, Panama.
