Traveling outside of country without being asked for proof of insurance

I just wanted to post this bit of information for those of you traveling outside of Ecuador to Europe. My partner and I just returned from an extensive travel to Europe. We are both residents of Ecuador and have the required medical insurance as per the new law passed last year. We returned two days ago and flew into Quito from Spain and then transferred to a connecting flight into Guayaquil. Upon both arrivals into Ecuador and going thru passport control and customs, neither one of us were ever asked to show "proof of medical insurance." We were absent from Ecuador for nine weeks. I just wanted to share my recent experience.
