15 Expats Talk about Health Insurance and Healthcare in Nepal

By Betsy Burlingame

Last updated on Oct 01, 2023

Summary: The quality of medical care in Nepal is generally lower than in the United States. Nepal has a shortage of medical professionals and limited access to medical technology, which can make it difficult to receive quality care. Emergency services in Nepal are limited and often slow to respond. To call for an ambulance, you can contact the local police station or dial 102.

How are healthcare services Nepal?

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

"Nepal has a public healthcare system that provides basic healthcare services to its citizens. The quality of public healthcare in Nepal is generally considered to be low, with limited access to specialized care and medicines. Foreign residents in Nepal have access to the public healthcare system, but the quality of care is not as good as in other countries. Expats in Nepal typically use private healthcare services, which are more expensive but offer better quality care. Private healthcare services in Nepal are provided by both local and international providers, and are generally considered to be of a higher quality than the public healthcare system," mentioned one expat in Nepal.
