Cost of Medical Procedures at Private Facilities

Recommended Posts

It would certainly be useful to know the costs of some standard procedures at various private health care facilities in Chiriqui and Panama City which a Boquete resident might be liable to use, if anyone knows how to obtain them.

Hospital Chiriqui

Clinica Hospital Cattan

Hospital Cooperativo

Hospital Medical Centre Mae Lewis

Medical Centre Paitilla

Hospital Punta Pacifica

Keith, I don't think there is a standard cost for any or most procedures. I personally bargained down, with the surgeons, at least two of my husband's surgeries before he had insurance. And my insurance agent told me that, even though a colonoscopy would be part of my insurance deductible because it did not involve an overnight stay, the insurance company nevertheless could negotiate with the hospital for a lower price. I suspect that's why hospitals don't publish these costs.

They might reveal a specific cost to RD or AAC members upon request, but that doesn't mean that it may not be higher or lower for someone else.
