      Insane health care prices and lack of access send many people to other countries. The problem is, we are not the only country that fails to protect people against the profit motive. This article focuses on one hospital in Mexico, but I know someone who went to the Philippines for a cancer miracle treatment, only to return to the US and get real chemotherapy that worked.

      No, no, you DO NOT go to a pricey beach resort for gringos when you are shopping for health care.   Go to Mexicali or Merida or some other non-touristy city.

        I know people who go to Tijuana to get dental implants and car repairs at the same time.

          Across the border from Yuma, AZ is the largest concentration of dentists in North America.  They do a thriving business.

          Unfortunately, dentists in Yuma can’t compete.  I have had dental work done in Ensenada, B.C., and it cost about 1/3 of the price north of the border.
