IMSS application process discouraging, to say the least.
My husband and I applied for IMSS through the Chapala office in May 2011. We followed every instruction to the letter … completing applications, paying fees, getting blood, urine and ECG tests, keeping detailed records of every visit, and making multiple copies of every document. Based on my ECG test, and saying that I had a heart problem, IMSS sent me to Tlajomulco to see a cardiologist who looked at the very same ECG printout and said, “I don’t know why they sent you to me. This is perfectly normal.”
