To those who self-pay for prepagas/HMOs, has anyone switched from Osde 210 to a cheaper prepaga or to no prepaga at all and just pay out of pocket? If you switched to a cheaper prepaga, to which one, and how’s your experience been? Or, if you pay out of pocket for labs, x-rays, MRIs, etc., excluding hospitalizations, what labs have the lowest prices (Rossi, diagnóstico médico, diagnóstico Maipu, central lab, etc.)? Thanks!

A partir de enero volverán los copagos en la cobertura de medicina privada
How can a provider (or an association of providers in this case) introduce a copay to an existing coverage contract that specifically says that there is no copay? They can increase premiums, they can limit list of providers - OK, we've seen it before. But the copay?

You should compare hospitals you can get with OSDE to hosptials you can go with cheaper insurance. Where you would rather be treated - in Hospital Aleman or in Sanatorio Guemes? If you can find a cheaper insurance that gets you to the same hospitals and doctors you can use with OSDE - why not? But many of the cheaper insurance providers give you a single-hospital coverage only.

It looks like they pulled it back. No more 9% copay.
Por lo tanto, la FAPS informa que deja sin efecto la implementación del copago para los pacientes de las citadas instituciones a partir del 1 de enero del 2022.
