Well , my insurance won't cover mine so I am self pay in Mexico.
I happen to have the cash for it, but it can be financed as well.
Mexico is MUCH cheaper then the states also...

I did the self pay in Mexico...wonderful experience and best care... hands down. I used Dr. Ramos-Kelly. I would highly recommend him for sure!

 I'm going to Costa Rica for surgery 10/31.  We've been there a few times and hope to retire there, so in part checking out the medical scene first hand.  Dr. Zafrani has great credentials (did surgery on the president of Costa Rica--that must mean something!)  Total, all inclusive w/ testing, blood work, hospital stay is $11k.  Good luck with whatever you decide!  -Maria
