Expats frequently ask about Dental Veneers, regularly stating that they’re interested in receiving them, though usually don’t ask about the other like kind option of Dental Crowns.

Most definitely, at FHIE Dental Clinic (Home of “Dr No. Pain”), we serve very many Expat patients for Dental Veneers and naturally are quite glad to do so upon their request.

In individual health insurance plans, each policyholder and their dependents have their policy and coverage tailored to their specific needs. Premiums and coverage are determined based on individual factors such as age and deductibles. Consequently, premiums can vary widely.

On the other hand, collective or group insurance plans are often provided by employers and organizations. These insurance plans cover a group of individuals under a single policy. Premiums and coverage are based on the overall risk profile of the group, leading to lower costs per individual. The risk-sharing nature of these plans can result in more stable premiums for all members, with healthier individuals subsidizing costs for those with higher medical needs.

For instance, while creating a collective insurance plan for a community of people aged 50 to 85, this demographic is more likely to require healthcare services due to age-related conditions and chronic illnesses. It could cause a higher healthcare utilization rate among its members, leading to greater claim volume and associated costs. This adverse selection could also lead to a disproportionate number of high-cost claims, impacting all members with potentially increased premiums.

Let’s set a premium of $65 per person which aims to maintain affordability, it may not accurately reflect the true cost of coverage, especially for older individual rates. Also, there’s a risk of losing benefits if the collective plan needs to migrate to another insurance company. This is particularly relevant due to two-year waiting period for coverage of pre-existing condition. If the plan switches companies, members may lose the benefits accrued during this waiting period, potentially leaving them exposed to significant healthcare costs.

In the month of September of last year, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a resolution through which, as of September 1ST, Venezuelan citizens who are irregular in Ecuador, could register on the website, and after that registration they could apply for a temporary visa.
The same resolution is provided for the citizens of the rest of the nationalities as of November 16th, 2022, the same registration can be made at the same website, but unfortunately there is still not an option for obtaining any type of visa.

According to officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Azogues, the Quito offices are working to draw up a regulation that allows people of other nationalities that are not Venezuelans to obtain a visa, fulfilling the requirement of registration on the aforementioned site.
According to the Department of Migration, the registration of foreign citizens who are irregular in Ecuador can be done until August 31, 2023.
If you are irregular at the moment, go and register on the website, this will be a requirement for your visa application, or if you want to leave Ecuador the registration certificate the Migration department provides you will be enough so that you can be exempt from any migratory penalty.
