How are healthcare services in Grecia?

Answer this Question

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

"Grecia offers a wide range of healthcare services to its citizens. The public healthcare system is managed by the Costa Rican Social Security Fund (CCSS), which provides free or low-cost medical services to all citizens. The CCSS operates a network of hospitals and clinics throughout the country, including several in Grecia. These facilities offer a range of services, including primary care, emergency care, and specialized care. Additionally, Grecia has several private hospitals and clinics that offer a variety of medical services, including general practice, obstetrics and gynecology, and dentistry. These facilities often provide more advanced treatments and technologies than the public system," explained one expat living in Grecia, Costa Rica.

"Residency to obtain public health care (CAJA) seems to be taking about 18 months, so you will have to use private care until you obtain residency (if that is what you plan on doing). Even with CAJA, many people continue to use the outstanding private facilities available in and around San Jose (possibly in other areas, but I am only familiar with San Jose). There are many expat health insurance plans available and I highly recommend obtaining one if you are under 70. There may be some available over 70; I don't know. I presently do not have any insurance and have been paying out of pocket for some serious medical issues. I suggest you have a fund of $6-10,000 tucked away if you don't have private insurance or have a high deductible," said another expat in Grecia, Costa Rica.
