The increase in the use of medical policies and a greater culture of prevention explains the 15% increase in the demand for private hospitals in the region expected for this year.
Despite the economic difficulties faced by each country in the region, demand in this sector has not diminished, as 60% of service users have private medicalinsurance. This underlies "... a growing culture of providing for medical emergencies and ensuring the health of families."
In the first six months of the year the income generated from this activity grew by 26.6% compared to the same period in 2013.
"... In the first half of 2014 10,338 people came into the country for medical treatment, generating $12,145,969 million in foreign exchange ... This represents an increase of 19.6% and 26.6% respectively when compared with the same period in 2013, when the amount of people who came was 8646 and revenue was $9,595,313."
During 2012, medical tourism generated $338 million for the country, up almost 4% compared to 2011, when it registered $300 million.
Figures from the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT by its initials in Spanish), revealed that in 2012 a total of 48,000 people came into Costa Rica for the purpose of undergoing various medical procedures.
