AAC/Hospital Cooperativo Special One Day Enrollment At Health Fair

 Boquete Hospice and Health is hosting the Boquete Health Fair on Sunday, October 22, and Alto al Crimen is pleased to have been asked to participate.

 We want to be able to give you information, but even better is the fact that we have decided to open enrollment for the Alto al Crimen / Hospital Cooperativo discount medical plan for this Sunday ONLY.  What would make better sense for a Health Fair?  The next scheduled open enrollment season will be from mid-December to mid-January.

 For those not familiar with the plan, Hospital Cooperativo in David offers a membership medical discount plan with discounts ranging from 20% to 50% on hospital procedures, hospital rooms, pharmacy, medical doctors’ fees, other health professionals’ fees and emergency room fees.  All of the discounts are greater than the Panamanian law requires for jubilados, and they all apply to any members, whether or not eligible for the jubilado discount.

 A full description of the plan will be available at the Alto al Crimen table at the Health Fair in the Arco Iris building in the Boquete fairgrounds (feria).  We will also have English translations of the contract available for review and maps showing the location of the hospital.

 Cost for the plan is $150 per year for the first member of a household and $125 per year for others in the same household.  However, enrollments this Sunday will be for 14 months so that memberships will be up for renewal in January 2019.  Fees will be $175 for first member and $150 for other members in the same household.  Payments may be made by cash, local checks or US checks.  ID card issuance will be delayed about three to four weeks for US checks.  The fees include cost of the plan and a modest donation the Alto al Crimen, allowing you to register for the AAC Bilingual Emergency Hotline.

 There is a separate contract for each person enrolled, and each requires a copy of the person’s cedula (preferred) or residency card or passport.  Please bring copies with you, and, if possible, also bring exact change if you will be paying cash.  We’ll try to have some limited change, and if necessary will be able to do photo scans of identification, but things will go faster and smoother if you come prepared.

 If you missed signing up for good medical care for very low prices back in January or July, this will be your chance to become a member without waiting longer.

 ‘See you at the Health Fair!
