We just sent a friend back to Miami by medivac, which cost $32,000. He was veteran, retired, with full disability but VA would not pay his flight. VA was paying for his hospital stay here but he was not getting any better. He was in a VA hospital in the US for two months, had a stroke and passed away.
I have my health care in Colombia, which costs me $31 a month for full coverage. I just consider the $160 round trip cost ticket as a deduct able. I have used it 3 or 4 times with a c- pay of a dollar. I have cedula for Panama and Colombia.
