EPS Health Insurance in Colombia
Does anyone have EPS Health Insurance in Colombia?
I am trying to figure out if EPS for 50.000 pesos or so a month alone would be sufficient health insurance coverage in Medellín, without having to pay 300.000 per month for medicina prepagada.
How is your experience with your assigned doctor, specialists, dentists, labs, hospital emergencies, hospital outpatient procedures, wait times, good and bad?

Too late for you I know... but to help others
Your contribution to EPS is non negotiable! you pay 2% of your declared income, so ensure it is sufficient to not raise eyebrows, then work out what you want to pay as your 2% and work out your declared income from there.
If you have your Visa and Cedula (or Contraseña), then you are supposed by law to register for EPS before looking at any other private insurance. EPS covers you, your wife and children, you do not make separate payments for each person.
