San José’s Hospital Metropolitano now offers a series of expanded health care plans targeting U.S. veterans and seniors living in Costa Rica and covered by TRICARE, FMP and various commercial insurance programs, according to a press release from the hospital. 

The programs aim to treat flu, high blood pressure, diabetes, hearing problems and other pathologies. 

Doctor checkups include hearing tests, prevention of infections, metabolic control and weight control, the hospital said. 

Hospital Metropolitano is experiencing rapid growth and a significant increase in the number of patients, and has increased the number of services offered at a new medical office tower located in front of the hospital’s current location in downtown San José. 

Expansion includes 50 medical offices, commercial areas, a restaurant, bank, gift shop, physical therapy, audiology and an ophthalmology clinic.
