Will I need to travel to see a specialist?

Answer this Question

When we asked members in Negombo if they typically need to travel to see specialists, they replied...

"Yes, there are a good number of medical specialists in Negombo. People in Negombo can access a wide range of medical services, including general practitioners, specialists, and hospitals. For highly specialized medical care, people usually go to the larger hospitals in Colombo, such as the National Hospital of Sri Lanka, the Lady Ridgeway Hospital for Children, and the Colombo South Teaching Hospital. These hospitals offer a wide range of specialized services, including cardiology, neurology, oncology, and other specialized treatments," explained one expat living in Negombo, Sri Lanka.

"People actually come to Sri Lanka for Medical Tourism but some Expats have expressed doubts about the quality of medical care here. If an expat was worried one could go to nearby India for anything or any condition to be treated. I had a stent put in last year in Nawaloka Hospital, Colombo Branch and total bill came to $3,000. I think Cancer care here is limited but not really informed on that. My international insurance refuses to cover pre-existing conditions (Cigna) so you are on your own with that. I would never return to the USA for medical care as that would not be covered by my insurance plan and the cost would be beyond anything I could ever pay," said another expat in Negombo, Sri Lanka.
