Early and timely medical attention is key to prevent the diseases from progressing and this implies a high cost for the population. In Mexico, 49% of the resources allocated to health services come from people’s pockets, according to data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
In 2020, some serious diseases such as diabetes or cancer -which could be stopped in the early stages with adequate detection- were among the most expensive, exceeding the average cost of 200,000 pesos, according to data from the Mexican Association of Insurance Institutions ( TO MY).
For this reason, and with the aim of helping more Mexicans to reduce their out-of-pocket spending on health through primary care, as of February of this year the Mexican Hospital Consortium (CMH) contributes with the amplification of the scope of the health services of the AXA Keralty alliance, by providing the infrastructure of its 45 hospitals located in 43 cities of the country.
“In 2019 we created the AXA Keralty alliance, a comprehensive health system through which people can access different quality medical services such as unlimited consultations for general medicine, specialties and studies, according to the contracted plan. This system, based on first contact care, will help you take better care of your health at an affordable price. Our efforts are focused on prevention and seek to reduce out-of-pocket spending on health ”, mentioned its CEO, Alejandro Pérez Galindo.
Primary medical care and timely diagnosis are key to reducing serious diseases, which affect the health and economy of Mexican families so much, which is why since August 2019 they have treated more than 70,000 patients in their Medical Attention Centers. and made about 42,000 video consultations.
For his part, Javier Potes, general director of the CMH, highlighted that the AXA Keralty-CMH scheme is the future of health in Mexico, since it will allow the generation of scales to reduce costs; thus, patients can access private medical care at affordable prices.
Some of the cities that AXA Keralty users will access this comprehensive private health system through the CMH are: Guadalajara, Hermosillo, Querétaro, Puebla, Mexicali, Ciudad Juárez, among others.
The AXA Keralty alliance will continue with its investment plan of 120 million dollars for 2024 and the new alliance with the CMH will allow it to have 51 primary care points for health care.
