How each plan works.


An individual plan allows you to be insured on a personal basis but this same insurance can be adapted to your family’s needs and become a family plan.

A health insurance can vary its cost according to your age and your coverage needs, a basic coverage in Ecuador starts at $ 6,000 per event or medical needs, with a monthly cost of $ 39.20, but one of the most recommended coverage by our broker is the individual plan of $ 100,000 per event or medical needs, this coverage will allow you to be protected to the maximum for a comfortable monthly cost for you.


A major expense plan has a coverage of $ 500,000 with an annual deductible of $ 5,000 per year, this high deductible cost can be covered with a lower insurance, a major expense plan is optimal if you do not use your medical insurance frequently or if you are a person who enjoys good health, since this will only have the function of being an emergency insurance for you, the monthly cost is low and depends on your age and sex.


A combined health plan is one of the best options when contracting a health policy since a combined policy allows you to make use of the best benefits of two policies for a minimum monthly value that assures you a complete coverage in Ecuador.

A combined plan consists of taking a policy with a high deductible and a large coverage accompanied by a smaller policy that covers your deductible of the larger policy and gives you considerable coverage for medical appointments, medical exams and primary expenses that can be a headache if not properly planned.
