Been here over 9 years and have had IMSS for 8 years and never used it. We checked in each year as suggested for a so-called check-up. Well, now that we need it I was turned down and my husband is now getting the stall treatment. The female Dr. passed a comment to our translator (she did not know that I pretty much understood)that she was so happy that IMSS was going to stop insuring gringos. She said this is for Mexicans, not gringos. That is fine I have no problem with that, what I do have a problem with is that they continue to take payments giving a false sense of security. Since this happened I am now hearing from others that are also getting the stall treatment. People that could not wait any longer and had to go privately. Please think twice before you join, you may not get the help that you need when you need it. We were due to sign up in July but will not. We will continue to use private Dr's. Medical coverage is an important issue and I wanted to share our recent experience with those considering using IMSS and with those who already have it. We will be talking to Lucy at LCS on Monday about this, but as I said we will not renew.
