How are healthcare services Russia?

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

"Healthcare services in Russia are provided by both public and private institutions. The public healthcare system is funded by the government and is available to all citizens and foreign residents. The quality of public healthcare in Russia is generally good, with a wide range of services available, including primary care, specialist care, and hospital care. Foreign residents are able to access the public healthcare system, although they may need to pay for some services. Expats in Russia can use the public healthcare system, but they may need to pay for some services. In addition, many expats opt to purchase private health insurance to cover any additional costs," wrote one expat.
