Are healthcare and health insurance expensive in Cairo?

Answer this Question

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

"Healthcare and health insurance in Cairo, can be considered relatively expensive, especially for those with low incomes. The cost of healthcare services and insurance varies depending on the type of facility and coverage chosen. Public hospitals are generally more affordable but may lack the quality and efficiency of private hospitals, which tend to be more expensive. Health insurance is not mandatory in Egypt, and many people rely on out-of-pocket payments for medical expenses. This can be burdensome for those without sufficient financial resources. Additionally, the quality of healthcare in Cairo can be inconsistent, with some areas having better access to medical services than others. Overall, the cost of healthcare and health insurance in Cairo can be a significant concern for many residents," explained one expat living in Cairo, Egypt.
