You can get elective surgery and other non-critical non-emergency medical treatment in India. The medical care is good and affordable to a US citizen. Of course you have to be selective which hospital and whcih doctor you may want to seek help from. Quality varies.

Emergency Medical Care

Within 10 miles. Mostly private. The service is good. Hospital in India (Hyderabad) are usually crowded. Most hospitals have ambulance service and emergency care available. Quality of care varies a lot from one hospital to the other. Check out local hospitals where expats go. Most likely their care quality is good even though they may be a bit more expensive.

Expat Health Insurance in India

Private Health insurance is expensive with lots of limitations. I have not taken health insurance. Decided to pay out of pocket. A day's hospital stay along with tests and doctor visit may cost around US $200 to $300.
