Mexico boasts an impressive and efficient healthcare system, which consists of public and private healthcare schemes. Expats employed in Mexico will need to contribute towards a mandatory public health insurance, where contributions are derived from their salary, their employer and the state. The majority of Mexican hospitals are excellent and are staffed by highly trained and English speaking doctors. Despite this, not all nursing and care staff speak English.
Mexico has achieved universal health coverage and its public healthcare is acceptable for most Mexican residents. Despite this, the private healthcare sector has grown considerably and is driven by increasing disposable income, the growth of medical tourism, and ease of access to higher quality private healthcare services.
