Summary: The quality of medical care in India is generally considered to be lower than in the US. However, India has made significant strides in recent years to improve the quality of its healthcare system. Emergency services in India are generally reliable, though they may not be as advanced as those in the US. To call for an ambulance in India, one can dial the emergency number 108, which is a free-of-charge service.

How are healthcare services India?

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

"Healthcare services in India are provided by both public and private sectors. The public healthcare system in India is largely funded by the government and provides basic healthcare services to citizens at a low cost. The quality of public healthcare in India varies from state to state, with some states providing better quality services than others. Foreign residents in India have access to the public healthcare system, but the quality of care may not be as good as in their home countries. Expats in India may use the public healthcare system, but they may also opt for private healthcare services, which are generally of higher quality," said one expat living in India.

"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," mentioned one expat in India.
