  • 1. Insurance Service and health In Costa Rica
  • 2. Health and human rights
    What is right to health?
    A human right that is well established by global organizations.
    There are countries who exercise this right better than others
  • 3. Costa Rican Health
  • 4. Health in Costa Rica
    Statistics  from  the World Health Organization's "The World  Health Report  1995"  place  Costa  Rica in third place, in life  expectancy in the  world.
    Some reasons for this can be found in the Costa Rican laid back  lifestyle, the healthy, fresh, non-preservative laden foods of the country, thetropical climate Costa Rica seems to be a healthy place to live. 
  • 5. In the United States, a study conducted in the 1980s, Costa Rica's medicalsystem, was first in Latin America and ranked near the United States and Canada. Among the 20 best in the world. Things are pretty much the same today.
  • 6. Insurances
    There are in Costa Rica two types of insurances: Private and public.
    Private insurances: Private clinics and hospitals
    Public insurances: C.C.S.S and the I.N.S
  • 7. Examples of private insurances
  • 8. Did you know this?
    Well-known private hospitals, like Clínica Bíblica, hospital CIMA and Clínica Católica have  many CCSS doctors that practice in the afternoons and evenings, offerfirst-class, ultra modern services.
  • 9. And the public Insurances
  • 10. Republic´s Law
    The state has the responsibility to safeguard the health of its population, and its legal basis is the general health law of the republic of Costa Rica.
  • 11. Government take care of health too
    With a government sponsored network, of 29 hospitals and more than250 clinics, around the country, with the Caja Costarricense del Seguro Social   (CCSS) that has primary responsibility for providing low cost, health services, tothe Costa Rican population.
  • 12. But what happen with the foreigners that needs insurance?
    • Foreigners living in Costa Rica, can join to the CCSS by paying a small amount of money, based on their income or  they can buy health insurance, from the State  monopoly Instituto Nacional de Seguros (INS), and this has over 200 affiliateddoctors, hospitals, labs and pharmacies, in  the private sector.
  • Clearly then, not only does Costa Rica offer universal health care coverageto its citizens, but that same high quality care is available for people from all over the world.
