Aren't all the conservatives going to Costa Rica with Limbaugh?
You mean the country where they can all have socialized medicine?
What a shock no citations!
It would seem only those with employment are covered under the National system in Costa Rica. And it would seem that most Costa Ricans opt for the private system. OOPS might want to do some research next time. Health System in Costa Rica
Health System in Costa Rica
Information about the national and private healthcare system in Costa Rica, from registering for health insurance to seeking medical treatment…
Universal social security and healthcare coverage in Costa Rica was founded in the 1940s and is a great source of pride for Costa Ricans. It has contributed to relatively low child/maternal fatality and high life expectancy rates. The organization that governs all public healthcare and welfare benefits in Costa Rica is known as La Caja or Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social (CCSS).
Anyone who lives or travels in Costa Rica can receive treatment from the national health system. However, only those who are legally employed (have a work visa or residency) can be insured under the national health system
. Anyone else is expected to pay for healthcare: in cash, via monthly installments, or through private insurance.
While the public system is generally perceived to offer satisfactory medical care, many foreigners and Costa Ricans choose the private system to avoid long queues and to have the freedom to choose their own family doctor
. In the public system, patients are assigned their primary doctor and usually need a referral from this doctor in order to see a specialist.
Makes those Costa Ricans look down rite conservative.
