Filling prescriptions with IMSS/INSABI? (Mexico)

Fri, October 29, 2021 3:52 PM

Hi everybody, I take mesalazine for ulcerative colitis and am considering residency in Mexico.  The general impression I'm getting is that private health companies here don't cover prescriptions and travel insurance will automatically deny you for a preexisting condition.  So I'm hoping the state healthcare system could be a way to cover prescription costs, after establishing at least temporary residency.  Does anyone have any experience with this process, specifically with what system can cover what?  Thanks in advance for any help!
