Are healthcare and health insurance expensive in Rio de Janeiro?

Answer this Question

When we asked expats in Rio de Janeiro if healthcare and health insurance are expensive in Rio de Janeiro, they wrote...

"Healthcare and health insurance in Rio de Janeiro, can be considered expensive for many residents, especially those with low incomes. The public healthcare system, known as SUS (Sistema Único de Saúde), is available to all citizens and foreigners, but it often faces issues such as long waiting times, overcrowding, and limited resources. As a result, many people opt for private healthcare and health insurance, which can be costly. Private health insurance plans vary in price depending on the coverage and services offered, but they generally provide better quality care and shorter waiting times. However, these plans can be a significant financial burden for individuals and families, making healthcare and health insurance a challenging expense for many living in Rio de Janeiro," said another in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
