You get a health card when you go to the clinic which you will then need to take with you whenever you go to the clinic in the future. It is unlikely that there will be a fee but there is always a donation box and other ways to support the clinic which provides free health care to local population. The suggested donation is $5. A consultation with a local private doctor's clinic is less than $50 BZD.

Everything You Need To Know About San Pedro Polyclinic’s New ID Card

I met with Mr. Owen Vellos, clinic administrator, who assured me that the process is simple and necessary. The card will expedite the triage process and provide doctors and nurses basic information about the patient as well as past medical records from public medical centers nationwide through the Belize Health Information System.

Patients can present the card at public hospitals nationwide and receive adequate treatment according to their past medical record. Pharmacies in these facilities have access to the system so the ID card can be presented instead of a written prescription, making the process paperless. Mr. Vellos assured me that NO patient will be turned away for not having an ID card. Emergency patients will be treated immediately and registered once they have been stabilized. This, of course, includes tourists visiting San Pedro.
