All socialized medicine systems in Mexico are available to legal residents - if they qualify for IMSS - if not they qualify to join the Seguro Popular - under rights of legal immigrant residents in the SEGOB - INM 2011 Immigration Law. This includes Residente Permanentes and Residente Temporal residents. Any state, city or hospital where Seguro Popular is denied to any legal resident is breaking this law and the federal Secretaria de Salud federal law and federal anti-discrimination law. Report them to the Secretaria de Salud administration office in the Seguro Popular hospital you are applying at. You will need the place, date, time and the employees name to report them. Take a copy of the above law with you. Even if the employee was instructed by higher ups the investigation you iniciate will reach those whom have incorporated a policy illegally in their particular sector of the federally administrated by Secretaria de Salud federal employees and federally funded Seguro Popular. IMSS also is administrated and mostly - some fee funded - funded by the federal government Secretaria de Salud and both have to follow federal laws without discrimination. Your 16 percent IVA taxes and any SAT taxes you pay fund it.
"Servicios de Salud" of the state of Queretaro are breaking 3 federal laws discriminating against legal foreign residents of Mexico by refusing to enrol them in federally funded socialized medicine in their state. Report the clerk who refused you to join to the federal "Sectretaria de Salud" administration office in the Seguro Popular hospital. Take a copy of this above federal law. It doesn't matter who instructed her to break the 3 federal laws as they will be investigated along with the clerk. Know your rights as a legal resident.
