Summary: Moving to Kiev, Ukraine? DATASENTENCE Expats talk about what you need to know before moving to Kiev.

How are healthcare services Kiev?

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

"I don't know if I can give advice concerning medical centers as long as I need medical help not that often. Here I can share my experience in medical treatment in Kyiv or Kiev. For me it was necessary whether the clinic works with International insurance companies and in which way. I was suggested to pay myself and then make the reimbursement of the expenses. I was given all the necessary documents and didn't have any trouble with my insurance company," stated one expat who made the move to Kiev.

"If you travel in Ukraine make sure you have real good international health insurance. I had a kidney stone attack and had to fly to New York for my surgery at the V.A. (Veterans Hospital) which the service is totally free. I am receiving 100% disability from the V.A. so all my medicals costs are paid by the V.A. including medicines," remarked another expat in Kiev.

"Pharmacies are everywhere in a city, on every corner. Which is great, but i suggest not to end up in a hospital. They stink. Literally as well," remarked another expat in Kiev.
