A while back, I was interviewed as part of a story on medical tourism in Nicaragua. It is a fairly good introduction to the subject. You can also search for more Medical Tourism information here. Health care for expats in Nicaragua is a large and fairly complex subject on its own, so let’s address something quite specifically. What about that group of people who are older but not yet on Medicare? As an aside, Medicare cannot be used overseas, even though it would cost the U.S. Taxpayer so much less for Medicare to encourage people to go to Latin America especially for cheaper but excellent health care. I read a good article about that very topic and then blogged about it.
