RE: salud Popular

Mex: Than thanks for some specifics. Hard to find that kind of info. I do know that some IMSS hospitals run out of popular meds by mid month. But being as this is Mexico a "donation" to the pharmacist brings out those meds in a flash! The Rebel that owns Farmacia Similares offered to save the Feds billions of pesos by supplying his generic meds. Never happened. Moisheh

RE: salud Popular

"This pretty much covers most of the country population." Almot I hope I incorrectly got the meaning of that statement. Are you saying mb.sk,pq and the maritimes don't count??? Arrogance??? Moisheh

RE: salud Popular

Unfortunately every province in Canada has different rules on out of province coverage and how long you can be away. But getting back to Almot's and the OP's questions. I would not consider SP to be good insurance. The clinics are very basic and often not clean. IMSS coverage is not that expensive. Keep in kind that if you get RP status you cannot have a Canadian car with Canadian plates. You will not lose your Canadian tax status. I would suggest that when you decide where you want to retire visit the local IMSS facilities and see for yourself if it would suffice. Even in the Chapala area where the hospitals are better many X-pats do not use the service. In smaller communities the clinics are very basic. BUT many of the Drs. are recent grads who are very savvy. The problem is they are not equipped to do anything more than a stitch or a cast. The Kino clinic does not even have an EKG machine nor any x-ray equipment. Someone in one of the other posts made reference to freeloading Gringos. Seguro Popular was really not intended for foreigners. But Mexico kindly looked the other way. I would suggest that using that service is "freeloading". BTW: Some foreigners buy catastrophic insurance or x-pat insurance with a big deductible. They just pay for minor problems. Moisheh

RE: ISL not performing

Wix might be OK for a gas engine but I would not use them on a large diesel. They often do not have the same micron rating as OEM. They also use a different method for establishing the rating. For a Cummins stick to Fleetguard. Moisheh

RE: salud Popular

I have had one operation and a procedure in a Mexican private hospital. I have also seen many specialists in those private hospitals. My wife had surgery in the same private hospital. Both of us have accompanied Mexican friends to IMSS Hospitals many times. Have seen the facilities and spoken to the Drs.. We often use a local clinic that offers Seguro coverage. A disaster. The IMSS hospital is no better. Beyond 3rd world. The General Hospital in Hermosillo (IMSS) is also a facility that I would not use. The armed guard is at the door in the private hospital every day! Has nothing to do with Gringos. Just their policy. There are some very nice IMSS hospitals but not in Sonora! Moisheh Moisheh

RE: salud Popular

Too many comments from people who know very little about the Mexican Health System. Almot: Have you ever been hospitalized in an IMSS hospital? Have you ever been hospitalized in a Mexican private hospital? Are you a member of Seguro Popular or do you just use Wikapedia and Google? Chris LIVES in Mexico and his statements are from his experiences as are Mex's and mine. BTW: When I disputed a bill from a private hospital the security guard did accompany us to the cashier.

RE: Peso hits all time low

Almot it does not matter if the peso is low or the dollar high. The end result is the same. Perhaps we should be considering how this affects the Mexican populous. The new middle class that everyone talks about do not exist on beans and rice. Nor do they furnish their homes with second class Mexican goods. Just go to Tucson when there is a Puente( long weekend). The stores are full of Mexicans. Not much different than the Canadians who cross border shop. The weak Peso will put the brakes on cross border shopping. Even the ma and pa stores in Mexico sell American goods which will become very expensive. The Chinese goods will rise in price as they are bought with USD$. No one wants pesos! Farmers will have to pass on the costs of USA herbicides and fertilizers. Inflation will rear it's ugly head.

RE: salud Popular

Medical care for foreigners can be complicated. Mexico has a multi tier health system. From the ones mentioned by Mexwanderer to top notch private hospitals. I am not sure if a tourist can apply for Seguro Popular. You might need a Residente Temporal not an FMM. I would not want it regardless. Some of their clinics are 3rd world. Even IMSS varies from good care to horrible. They run out of medicines mid month and none of the new drugs are on their list. Many of the private hospitals are as good as first class USA facilities. But they are not cheap like IMSS. Specialists charge around 800 pesos for a consult. Still inexpensive by US standards. Tourist areas have private hospitals with signs stating they speak English and take credit cards. Avoid these facilities . They are known to rip off customers with fees that approach Scottsdale prices but health care that is 3rd rate. I think that Sharp Hospital is one of those facilities. We use CIMA in Hermosillo and they are great. As was mentioned when it is time to leave the hospital an armed guard accompanies you to the accounting office! Moisheh

RE: Peso hits all time low

It's all about perception. If foreigners think that the US$ is a safe currency that is where the money will go. As for the loonie unless oil suddenly rises to $100 the loonie will continue to drop. Every time another auto plant opens in Mexico the Canadian economy suffers. Moisheh

Peso hits all time low

It isn't just our poor Lonnie that is suffering. The Peso touched 16.5 on Friday. The Snowbirds who travel to AZ must be worried about the Loonie. It seems to be dropping very quickly. I think it will go beyond the 69 cent mark. Maybe even break 60 cents!!! Tequila: If you were upset about the Mexican CG owners charging USD$ just think how that will feel now! On another note I read in another forum that some US banks are no longer allowing their debit cards to be used in Mexico due to "skimming". This is where some creep installs a false front to an ATM and when you use it they capture all your data and clone the card. Apparently this is rampant in Mexico at this time. There have been a number of arrests in Canada where it is also common. Moisheh

RE: Newer diesel engines

fla gypsy: Modern OTR trucks are not meant to idle. Most come from the factory with a 5 minute idle and then they shut down. Some do have what is called "clean idle". Moisheh

RE: Shrinking Canadian dollar

It looks like in a month or two we will be wishing the Loonie was at Today's rate. I am wondering if it will surpass that 65 cent range and hit 50 cents! Without getting political the only intervention from the Feds has caused even more problems! At this rate Yuma will not be very crowded! Nut not to worry as we are being told that Canada is NOT in a recession. Moisheh

RE: Aero Turbine muffler?

Nor only is it a waste of $$ if your unit is a 2007 or later with a DPF you cannot just install a muffler! Moisheh

RE: Preventative Air Brake Maintenance

It is not recommended to replace just the diaphragm. Most shops will replace the whole "pot". Moisheh

RE: Cummins 400 ISL diesel particulate filter

Ivylog: EGR never became standard until around 2002. Anything 2001 and below is no different than a 1995. Truckers buy "Glider" trucks. These are essentially a new truck but come with a pre 2002 emission system engine. No EGR! It is more than just the EGR as the ECM is also set up differently. Now if only we could buy a new MH with that same emission system! Moisheh

RE: GSRSA coverage in Mexico - Ever Used it?

I have seen one post from a person who used the service. Apparently it went not too badly. If one has a large vehi on being in Baja and them finding you a truck could be a problemcle you might have to wait a long time while GS tries to find a big truck. There are some really good companies that are equipped. For smaller vehicles they might send someone who is not qualified. I would prefer to find my own tow truck or mechanic. I have done this twice with Coach Net. I submitted my claim and the payment was prompt. It also depends where you are located. You were planning on being in Baja and it could be hard for them to find you a truck. I think Coach Net has a $1000 maximum. Moisheh
