How are healthcare services in Lisbon?

Answer this Question

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

"Lisbon offers a wide range of healthcare services for its citizens. The public healthcare system is provided by the National Health Service (Serviço Nacional de Saúde), which is free for all Portuguese citizens and residents. The system is divided into three levels: primary care, secondary care, and tertiary care. Primary care is provided by family doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals, and is available in health centers and hospitals throughout the city. Secondary care is provided by specialists in hospitals and other healthcare facilities, and tertiary care is provided by specialized centers and hospitals. In addition to the public healthcare system, Lisbon also has a number of private healthcare providers, including hospitals, clinics, and medical centers. These private providers offer a range of services, including general and specialized medical care, as well as dental and other health services," said another in Lisbon, Portugal.

"Choose a healthcare insurance company that has a strong network in your area; some are focused on the Southern region, some across the middle and so on. Look into brokers for lower rates rather than buy the coverage directly from the insurance company or from your bank," explained one expat who made the move to Lisbon, Portugal.
