15 Expats Talk about Health Insurance and Healthcare in Laos

By Joshua Wood, LPC

Last updated on Mar 06, 2024

Summary: The quality of medical care in Laos 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.

How are healthcare services Laos?

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

"Healthcare services in Laos are provided by both public and private institutions. The public healthcare system is largely funded by the government and is available to all citizens of Laos. The quality of public healthcare varies depending on the region, but generally it is considered to be of a lower standard than in other countries. Foreign residents do have access to the public healthcare system, but the services are limited and the cost of treatment can be expensive. Expats in Laos often use the public healthcare system for basic medical needs, but they may also opt to use private healthcare services for more specialized treatments," said an expat in Laos.
