I'm looking at coming to Odessa late Oct or early Nov. Can anyone give advice on getting a reasonably-priced health insurance plan? I also want to begin my Russian language lessons asap, could anyone suggest a good reasonably-priced school? One last thing, how do I plug into the expat community there? Spasibo!
Health insurance plans are a waste of money. Good private medical here is very inexpensive for mist Westerners. Expat health insurance is expensive and a waste of money. There are people on this forum that have spent in the neighborhood of around 5000$ in 10 years on medical and that include open heart bypass surgery and all the other ancillaries that go along with it. Hell, that cheaper than most deductible. I paid 600$ for a double hernia operation.
I used a private tutor. Her name is Nadya and she was lived and worked in the U.S. on two separate occasions. She speaks good English but also understands Americans which is a bonus. You can reach her on Viber. Message me privately and I will send you her phone number.
As for health insurance... was are you referring to? If you need healthcare in Ukraine, you pay for it. There is no health insurance. It's socialized medicine.
I would strongly suggest you do more research... you do not appear to know much about Ukraine. GO back through the posts on this site and you will get a plethora of information.
Many expats move to Ukraine for its low cost of living. Expats living in Ukraine appreciate that most Ukrainians are salt-of-the-earth, hardworking people. Corruption and bribery are a way of life and expats share their experiences paying bribes.
