The maximum coverage under the obligatory insurance policy included in the annual circulation permit (Marchamo) is ¢6 million colones

However, the cost of recovery of a patient is more than six million, it can be in the billions of colones for serious injuries. The difference is paid by the Caja, covered by contributions made to the state social security fund.

If we all drive with care, we all win.

No numbers were available for medical attention at private medical centers.
