Insurance Lago Atitlan Guatemala

Insurance Defined: In law and economics, insurance is a form of risk management primarily used to hedge against the risk of a contingent, uncertain loss. Insurance is defined as the equitable transfer of the risk of a loss, from one entity to another, in exchange for payment. An insurer is a company selling the insurance; an insured, or policyholder, is the person or entity buying the insurance policy. The insurance rate is a factor used to determine the amount to be charged for a certain amount of insurance coverage, called the premium. Risk management, the practise of appraising and controlling risk, has evolved as a discrete field of study and practice.

The transaction involves the insured assuming a guaranteed and known relatively small loss in the form of payment to the insurer in exchange for the insurer's promise to compensate (indemnify) the insured in the case of a financial (personal) loss. The insured receives a contract, called the insurance policy, which details the conditions and circumstances under which the insured will be financially compensated.

I will nose around, I have never known anybody in Pana or San Pedro to have Insurance. But a doctor visit cost maybe 8 U.S. and prescriptions normally cost less than than the amount of the co-pay.

Write in here a list of the medicines, and thmilligramsms, and I will go the Pharmacy and find out the price.

You do not neeprescriptionptio to buy here.

Note, in way, the best strategy is to retain your American Insurance, and pretend you live in the USA. 99 percent of your problems you can solve 50-100 times cheaper in Guatemala. Then, if you get Cancer, or need something truly horrible, you go back to the USA and pretend you never left.

But the bottom line, any country on the planet has a way to treat medical problems, there is almost always a solution for a rich American. And, any American here in Guatemala is rich, that is for sure.


The meds in Spanish, except for one.

I printed them, I will try to collect the Generic and Brand name prices, then post here. To demonstrate the prices, and maybe you can estimate the prices in the USA.
