What Every Expat Should know about Ecuador Health Insurance Requirements

October 18, 2018 all-day

Health Insurance Regulation Presentation and Free Dinner. Thursdays October 18 and 25

So much confusion exists and so many rumors abound regarding the new healthcare insurance requirements for expats. As a community service, Cuenca Expats Magazine’s Managing Partner Ed Lindquist will share important information gained during interviews with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Government agency charged with administrating the new regulations)and leading Ecuadorian immigration attorneys. An official from the Ministry will be available for Q&A.

Same information will be presented at the two (2) “town meetings” currently scheduled for October. Each will be limited to 25 attendees to facilitate the opportunity to answer all your questions. So, RSVP today as seating is limited and reservations will be on a “first come” bases.
Each meeting will start at 5pm. The meeting place will be the convenient el Centro location of the expat-supported charity Mujeres Con Exito.
