News and Events, Questions and Answers

U.S. Federal Benefits Outreach - The Federal Benefits Unit from the U.S. Consulate General in Guadalajara will be holding two meetings for U.S. citizens in the southern Baja, tentatively in La Paz Aug. 3, 2011, and in Los Cabos Aug. 4, 2011. Time and place to be announced. Topics to be covered: Medicare changes and general information; types of services provided by FBU; retirement, survivor, and disability claims; direct deposit changes; Social Security number applications; and time will be alloted for questions and answers.

For further information: Federal Benefits Unit in Guadalajara, 01-800-772-6394; U.S. Consular Agency in Los Cabos, 624-143-3566; and Marina in La Paz, 612-125-2112 - Trina Brown. U.S. Consular Agency, Cabo San Lucas, B.C.S. Telephone and Fax Number: 624-143-3566, usconsulcabo [ - a t - ] yahoo.com

Benefits Meeting - Relative to the above meeting, we would like either email address or phone numbers from interested people so we can send them the exact date, time and location. RSVP is requested to Susan Ross, Neil Shroyer or Don Mitchell before July 25. Our email addresses are: Don Mitchell -- donmitch [ - a t - ] prodigy.net; Susan Ross -- yachtmanagement [ - a t - ] bluewaterketch.com; and Neil Shroyer -- daniel [ - a t - ] marinalapaz.com. - Thanks very much.

Seguro Popular and Seguro Social - Courtesy La Paz Gringos - Seguro Popular was created primarily to make sure that the uninsured 50% of the population are not forced into poverty when they get sick. This would, of course, require people to get used to the idea of pre-paying for services, in this case, medical "protection" -- but so far, that part of the plan hasn't worked out too well.

Other articles and the SP website indicate that the Plan is available to any legal resident of Mexico, and that fees are based on a sliding scale according to income. For most poor people, the coverage is free, but that doesn't mean the plan is only for poor people; in fact, the opposite is true because the paying customers help subsidize those who pay nothing.

It also appears that Seguro Popular is a work in progess ... that services, drugs etc will continue to be added and expanded as money becomes available and the rosters grow. The government hopes to have 50% of the population covered by Seguro Popular in the next few years, and groups like the The World Health Organization and the UN have been very supportive of the plan.SP Website (English): http://www.seguro-popular.gob.mx/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=100&Itemid=137. A very long and dry article on how SP has evolved: http://www.internationalbudget.org/pdf/JHPPL2010.pdf

IMSS, on the other hand, is a somewhat more extensive and expensive plan available to anyone under the age of 65 who does not have a pre-existing condition (even high blood pressure). Here's an excerpt from an article by Rick Lewis of MazInfo (link to complete article below):

IMSS stands for Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social. Itís about as close to socialized medical coverage as you can get. Many working people qualify for IMSS and many employers make a contribution toward the IMSS coverage. Mexico has allowed retirees and other visiting residents to buy the IMSS coverage. They base the cost on what the payment would be if you were working full time at minimum wages. Visit http://www.mazinfo.com/infofiles/IMSS.htm; hamiltos12 [ - a t - ] yahoo.com, La Paz Gringos - Sheryl Hamilton, moderator [ - a t - ] bajawesternonion.com, www.mazinfo.com/infofiles/IMSS.htm, La Paz

MSN/Hotmail Email Scam - This one has been circulating recently. You receive an "Invitation," sent from a Hotmail or MSN account of someone you know:

The scammer's website asks you to enter your Windows Live ID and password to

"Analyze your MSN Messenger Contact list and discover who has deleted you
from his contact list without changing your nickname or losing your data!

The scammer's website, msnmessengerlist.com, was registered to a Juan Manuel Martinez 2 weeks ago on June 28. Don't even think about giving out your ID and password to this online scam, or ANY website that asks for it, regardless of who appeared to have sent you the Email. This is called "Social Engineering," where you are being tricked into thinking that you are receiving something from a friend or business you know, and lulling you into a false sense of security.

Your friend's Email account has already been hacked by this scammer who really sent the Email, and now yours will be hacked as well if you fall for such nonsense. - Alan, alan [ - a t - ] bajawesternonion.com

Baja Tourist Visa Warning - Courtesy La Paz Gringos - We just wanted to warn anyone new traveling this route that are not FM2 or FM3s that you MUST get a Tourist Visa at the USA/Mexico Border before entering Mexico. We were waved through the border and, although a little perplexed about the Visa, we continued on. When we got to Guerro Negro there was an Immigration Stop together with the inspection point for fruit. As we did not have our tourist Visa, we had to go into the Immigration office and they gave us a notice that we had to take to the Immigration Office in La Paz.

In La Paz we were fined approximately $120 US each in addition to the $25 each for the Visa. It took four visits to the Immigration office to finally get the Visa after filling in forms, copying our forms and passports, and going to the bank to pay the fees. Lesson learned - it is imperative to seek out the Mexican Visa Office before crossing the Border. Barbara King - moderator [ - a t - ] bajawesternonion.com

Baja Green Builder - Baja Green Builder is seeking help with an unjust fine he must pay to the Mexican government: $20k dollars, for having a water meter locked up by sand when he wasn't down here to free it up. Looking for donations so we can get back to our experiments in sensible, economical, green ways to house people better and help homeless Mexicans. - Randy Echter, rke1951 [ - a t - ] gmail.com, 612-154-0485, La Paz

Share Mail Box - I am seeking to find a person or persons who have a mail box and would like to have an additional person to share expenses. I live in Todos Santos and prefer to have mail here, then again, Cabo or La Paz will work. I have nothing now to bring in my mail. - lowerbaja [ - a t - ] yahoo.com, 612-161-4728, Todos Santos

Pet Corner (Lost and Found pet articles will run for two weeks)

Let us know if you find or place your pet so we can remove your ad -

It Was A Dark And Stormy Night... - Okay, so that's a stretch - but it sure felt like it when all six of us got thrown away! We were so scared, so hungry and really missed our mom. After what seemed like forever, a really nice man named Joel came along and took us home. We all got a bath and some really good grub and life was good again.

But, here's the deal: Joel and Isela have a new baby boy and really need to find loving families for us because life is kind of hectic for them right now. Their great big dog and especially kitty have taught us to be respectful and we all get along just great. We are beautiful, in super good health and so anxious to meet our new family - we're waiting! For more info in English call Cindy at 145-0666 or in Spanish only call Joel 044-612-117-8381. - cindyfenix [ - a t - ] yahoo.com, Todos Santos

"Good Dog" Needs Ride Home to Rosarito From Guerrero Negro - Hola, It is a long story on how our dog (Einstein, he was named that from the shelter/rescue group) is still in Guerrero Negro after our car broke down 60 miles north of there almost four weeks ago. Actually, the story has a way in which the 'universe' can show a sense of humor on what one plans to do. LOL anyway - the car is still not fixed, however, it was towed to Rosarito and we are looking for the right and perfect motor (Subaru 2.5 liter engine) - if you know of one, please let me know.

The question is: Do you know anyone going north (Rosarito) from Baja Sur that can stop in Guerrero Negro and give our dog ' a ride home?' He's good natured, calm, and mostly obeys simple commands. He weighs about 65 pounds and will stay "in the back" when you tell him "stay." If you can 'bring him home,' we would gladly help out on your gas expenses. All he needs is a couple of times to go for a short walk to do his normal body functions. He will have his food and water bowls along with his bed - and, he is an experienced traveler. - Richard Herndon, richardofbaja [ - a t - ] yahoo.com
