What is MediSmart?
The smart medical plan...
MediSmart is a prepaid medical plan developed to provide high quality private healthcare services at very affordable prices for our members. This plan was developed as a response to the needs of an important segment of the Costa Rican population – people who desire access to high quality, private medical services, but at an affordable price. Our network includes more than 400 physicians in more than 45 specialties throughout the country.
If you become part of our membership plan you will be able to benefit from specific prices in our different specialty providers and medical services including: X-rays, ultrasound, laboratory testing and pharmacy. Furthermore with our MediSmart Club you will enjoy discounts in different retail shops, restaurantes, hotels, etc.
