The Mexican government announced the distribution of the IMSS-Bienestar card aimed at benefiting 60 million people in the country.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador led the morning press conference on Wednesday, October 11, 2023, from the National Palace.

On this occasion, he was joined by Ana Elizabeth García Vilchis, head of the “Who’s Who in the Week’s Lies” section.

Among various announcements, AMLO revealed the issuance of the IMSS-Bienestar card to establish a more rigorous patient tracking system.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced that in the coming months, nearly 60 million beneficiaries of the IMSS-Bienestar card program will be provided with credentials.

Regarding the IMSS-Bienestar card, AMLO stated that it would enhance service efficiency and improve health statistics.

“A card will be issued, merely to track the type of illnesses of the patients and the medications used,” AMLO explained at the National Palace.

The Mexican leader clarified that currently, all residents of the 23 states that have already signed the National Agreement for the Federalization of the Healthcare System can visit any hospital or health center and receive free medical care “without the need for any identification.”

AMLO emphasized that, in the future, “there will be a card for Mexicans without social security.”

The states that have signed the agreement so far are: Baja California, Baja California Sur, Campeche, Chiapas, Colima, Mexico City, Guerrero, Hidalgo, State of Mexico, Michoacán, Morelos, Nayarit, Oaxaca, Puebla, Quintana Roo, San Luis Potosí, Sinaloa, Sonora, Tabasco, Tamaulipas, Tlaxcala, Veracruz, and Zacatecas.

He clarified that the IMSS-Bienestar card system is still in its early stages.

López Obrador reiterated that funds used to be transferred to the states, but that money was diverted for other purposes, leading to the lack of quality medical service, along with corruption in the procurement of medicines.
