15 Expats Talk about Health Insurance and Healthcare in Venezuela

By Betsy Burlingame

Last updated on Jul 15, 2023

Summary: The quality of medical care in Venezuela is generally lower than in the United States. Medical facilities are often understaffed and lack the necessary resources to provide adequate care. Emergency services are limited and unreliable, and it can be difficult to call for an ambulance. In some cases, people have to rely on private transportation to get to a hospital.

How are healthcare services Venezuela?

When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Venezuela, they replied:

"Healthcare services in Venezuela are provided by both public and private institutions. The public healthcare system is funded by the government and is free for all citizens. However, the quality of public healthcare is often inadequate due to a lack of resources and infrastructure. Foreign residents do not have access to the public healthcare system, but they can use private healthcare services. Expats in Venezuela typically use private healthcare services, as they are more reliable and offer better quality care," said one expat living in Venezuela.
