Health care system in Colombia is public and universal. Unless you're a beneficiary of the subsidized system (Sisbén), contributions are paid by the employer (8% of salary) and the employee (4% of salary). These contributions are mandatory. The money is then redistributed by the government. Higher income population still pay private insurance ("prepagada") to access special treatments, skip the lines, and hardly ever use the universal public health system.

A lot in medical care depends on the institution (insurer called here EPS = Empresas Proveedoras de Servicios) you are subscribed to, and the individual "professional" (some of them are real animals) you deal with in person.
