Family members are in San Jose del Cabo. An older relative fell and hit her head. Two days later, complications required her to be transported to hospital by ambulance. Overnight stay, two CT scans, a few pills and they sent her home. The cost $9,000, and yes, that's dollars, not pesos. The doctor wants her to come back for another CT scan (cost for each is $1,000). This seems to me like a form of robbery, they see you coming. Unfortunately, due to an oversight or some other reason, they didn't get insurance this time, so it's all out of pocket. Even if they did have insurance, these rates seem outrageous (and please, no vitriol for them not having insurance, it's a mistake they made and are living with).
I'd say, please beware when you are going there, I don't know if they decide when you come in whether you'll get charged the gold standard or a lower rate, but they have you where they want you.
