Garbage ousts $3 million health insurance plan for visitors to Panama

Tuesday, December 7, 2010


The much touted health insurance plan for visitors to Panama has disappeared under a pile of garbage.

The $3 million that the tourism authority had set aside to implement the plan has been transferred to the new national waste authority as the government scrambles to find funds so that the clean-up body can begin operations in December.

The tourism authority had planned to purchase insurance policies for visitors entering the country through Tocumen International Airport.
