15 Expats Talk about Health Insurance and Healthcare in Cambodia

Last updated on Feb 01, 2024

Summary: The quality of medical care in Cambodia is generally lower than in the United States. Emergency services are limited and often lack the necessary resources to provide adequate care. To call for an ambulance, one must contact the local police station or the Ministry of Health. In some cases, private ambulances may be available, but they are often expensive and may not be equipped with the necessary medical supplies.

How are healthcare services Cambodia?

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

"Cambodia has a public healthcare system that provides basic healthcare services to its citizens. The quality of public healthcare in Cambodia is generally considered to be low, with limited access to medical equipment and supplies. Foreign residents in Cambodia have access to the public healthcare system, but the quality of care is not as high as in other countries. Expats in Cambodia often use private healthcare services, which are more expensive but offer better quality care. Private healthcare services are available in major cities, such as Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, and are often used by expats who are not covered by public healthcare," commented one expat living in Cambodia.

"Specifically, the International Clinics are preferred. CT Clinic can be good or not so good. My doctor here is Russian. Here, 4 years of college and a score of 50% on the final exam qualifies a Cambodian to become a doctor. Best to avoid of course," wrote one expat.
