Expat Healthcare Advice for Asuncion

These remarks are our opinions...my wife and mine. Research available plans and options within these plans. Ask for references and opinions from known sources, not strangers. Care in the metro area is probably far better than the outer lying towns and their clinics or hospitals. Always have insurance and get to know your primary physician.

Emergency Medical Care in Asuncion

Less than 10 minutes away from several hospitals. They are Migone, San Roque, La Costa and Hospital Bautista or Baptist Hospital. Ambulances have shown rapid response and seem reliable. Not qualified to comment on the ER care but think it is fairly good. The level of care at the hospitals seems to correspond with your insurance plan and the clout of your doctor. These all are public hospitals, paying clients not charity or low cost such as the social security hospital.

Quality of Healthcare in Surrounding Area

Have not had the occasion to do so. Should the need arise, we would primarily go to the states or Buenos Aires.

Prescription Medicines

Yes I would venture to say that 95% of prescription medications are here or if not there is a suitable alternate. For the most part, the medicines are not as expensive here in Asuncion compared to the US and certainly are more easily procured as meds such as antibiotics and blood pressure tabs are mostly over the counter. However, this is not to say that you should "self medicate", always see your doctor. Hum, sounds like an ad to me.
