I think that Argentina and Peru were like that. Even then, at some borders they will not ask for it. When I crossed into Argentina from Chile I went to a border that other travelers said did NOT ask for proof of insurance - though I did buy insurance at the first opportunity. Also when I went into Peru I had a fake insurance form, but then soon as I found a insurance office that would sell coverage by the month I picked a policy up.
Honestly though, things change very, very fast in central and south america, so what I experienced a year ago may not apply now.
