There is a great variety of medical plans available for both foreigners and Brazilians.  Some of the best ones are AMIL, Saude Bradesco, UNIMED, and DIX.  There are no annual contracts, it is pay as you go.  The monthly premium depends on the plan, type of coverage chosen and age of the benefitiary.

For example, no-deductibles, no out of pocket expenses DIX coverage for two people in 25 to 39 age group, costs around R$180 per month.  AMIL coverage for a 44 yo with International Emergency and Urgent Care supplement (treatment in some of the best hospitals around the world including USA) costs ~R$260.

Basic AMIL coverage for 60 yo without international supplement runs at about R$290. per month.

The prices are the same for locals and foreigners.
