Blog: Articles to Help You Navigate Puerto Rico

See where you can find top-quality doctors on the island.

Healthcare in Puerto Rico

No matter where you are in the world, having access to the right healthcare is imperative. Puerto Ricans have access to a medical infrastructure that is highly efficient and of a high standard, even though conditions may vary across the island.

For instance, metropolitan areas such as San Juan and Ponce have extensive resources of doctors, clinics, and hospitals. Finding immediate healthcare may be a little tricky in rural areas. That is why it is always a good idea to do your research beforehand on the doctors and health care centers available in the area that you are visiting.

Puerto Rico Health Insurance

Since Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States; your domestic health insurance plan should cover most of the services, such as getting your prescriptions filled, purchasing medical devices, and consultations with a doctor who is affiliated to your insurance company’s network.

Your U.S. Medicaid, for example, will also transfer to the island. However, coverage usually depends on the particular policies of an area and may be limited.

The public health care system that most Puerto Ricans use can be unpredictable at times. In case you are planning an extended stay in Puerto Rico or are an Act 60 decree-holder who has relocated to the island, it is recommended that you buy a private health insurance plan.

Along with providing guaranteed access to top-quality healthcare and the best doctors Puerto Rico has in store, they cost half as much as U.S. insurance plans. The leading health insurance companies in Puerto Rico are Triple-S Salud, Humana, Medical Card System, and Mapfre.

What to Do in an Emergency

During an emergency, the rule of thumb is to call 911 immediately. The operators who receive 911 calls usually speak in Spanish, but they will transfer you to an English speaker if needed.

A private company manages ambulance services, requiring you to pay in advance. Usually, ambulances are not linked to any health care institution, so you should know the name of the specific hospital or clinic you prefer. El Presby in Condado and Centro Medico Emergency Care are some of the best urgent care and emergency rooms in San Juan.
