Over the last week I have had to take several tests. On the whole, Mae Lewis has been cheaper than Hospital Chiriquí. As an example one test was $186 at Hospital Chiriqui and it was $140+ at Mae Lewis.
What this showed me was that it may be worth shopping around before having some procedures run.
Also for women, Hospital Obaldia is cheaper than both Mae Lewis and Hospital Chiriquí.
A penny saved is a penny earned so to speak.
