To Buy, Or Not To Buy... (Montevideo)

My wife and I will be in Uruguay for almost a week before year’s end.

We are trying to decide whether to buy travel health insurance for this trip. We see no point in having it if any health emergency would be covered by some kind of government-provided plan for which we would be eligible AND no private care is available.

If private care is available, we’ll buy the insurance; if not, and we qualify for government-provided treatment, we won’t.

Will someone please advise us?
