Thanks! I had read articles like that before, but wanted more clarity from expats who have dealt with US medical system too.
As we've always been self-employed and had to buy health insurance out of pocket, I was wondering what the equivalent system is here, and I assume it's way better here as healthcare from what I've observed here is way more human and humane!
So I guess we could have an obra social and a prepaga? I guess I'm not clear on the benefits of obra social if I can just pay for a prepaga? Especially given I'm not planning to use it much
If you will be self employed you only need a Prepaga which you will pay out of pocket. Your husband with a DNI as an Argie citizen can buy into any prepaga.
However since you are in Entre Rios, must determine the best prepaga plan for your family and the best service provider in your city. A plan that includes dental care, etc. Since you are fairly young the cost may be reasonable for Swiss Medical.
