A systematic literature review in recognized search engines was performed and also, specific people were consulted. The final recommendations were established based on the identification of particular problems. Results: Definitions relevant at the international and national level with respect to waiting lists, description of some models or implemented solutions, mechanisms used in Europe to address these problems and the Costa Rican situation up to 2011. Finally, institutional achievements of the CCSS. Conclusions: It is possible to identify recommendations on alternative proposals for the administration of the CCSS’ waiting lists.
