I looked but could not find that article. Nothing that Mayokas says surprises me.

Silversand - Medical Air Services Inc don't sell evac insurance, they only arrange logistics with carriers. Unless you pay out of pocket, it's up to the insurance plan who they will hire for evac.

I've looked into evac plans both as a part of insurance and standalone evac's from $50/year to $400/year, they mostly vary in where they take you to. Vast majority - especially those included in medical insurance - will take you to the "nearest suitable hospital" which would be $$$ US or CIMA (the latter is not for "poor Mexico", they charge almost like a US hospital). $400/year standalone evac will take you to the city specified in a contract, but this is only evac, treatment not included.

I wonder whether any private hospital in Baja or Baja Sur even has Regen-Cov on hand.

Another thing with evac plan - you can't ask to be flown to the US where they will give you Regen-Cov infusion when you have no symptoms but tested positive, or to Canada where they give Regen-Cov when you are tested positive and have at least mild symptoms (Canadian system is greedier). Nope. You must be hospitalized to be eligible for evac - can be a cot in a shack, anything, as long as there is a Doc to certify your condition. In plans where evac is a part of medical insurance, it is the same - you must be in danger to lose your life or an organ if not treated within 24 hours (if memory doesn't fail me).

Almot. Skymed will take you to your home city. There is at least one other that does the same. Cima does not charge US prices. I have had 4 procedures at Cima. Some were 40% of US prices and others were about 50 %. Still expensive but worth every penny. If you have Lewis and Lewis auto insurance they will fly you to BC. If you test positive with no symptoms no hospital is needed.

Ok folks. The US border will open to Canadian and Mexican casual visitors 1st week of Nov. No Covid test required whatsoever. Fully vaccinated only? Yes. Done deal.

Spot check only for your papers showing vaccines.

Btw, the land borders WERE closed because of symmetry.

....for sure. There are numerous air medical services of several genres with contracts with Canadian medical travel insurance cos. Best to absolutely verify if your prospective medical insurance co's evac outfit allows for communicable disease transport, and where you would be delivered [emoticon]

I would advocate for anyone seeking such a service to actually overthink the research; after all, its potentially your life at stake.

Yeah. So many competing interests across the hundreds of thousands of media entities that exist today....its hard the synthesize the messages. One almost needs to use a syntax analyzer to extract something close to useful [emoticon]

AMLO announced today in the matutina press that the U.S. Mexico border should be open by the first of November, they are going to try to vaccinate as many as they can along the border so that they can open to turistas.

Just heard on morning News the Mexico border will also be opened so should be no problem to return. All will have to be Vacced in Jan '22, even essential workers. Will be interesting as we have had alot of Mexican essential workers coming across the border for the last couple of years. Never knew if they were vacced.
