Are healthcare and health insurance expensive in Kingston?

Answer this Question

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

"Ensure that you have insurance and don't take an unregulated taxi as it might not be insured. I was unfortunate to be in a pretty serious car crash here and it would have involved been horrendous health care costs without insurance," remarked another expat in Jamaica.

"Healthcare and health insurance in Kingston can be considered expensive, particularly for those with low incomes. Public healthcare facilities are often overcrowded and under-resourced, leading many individuals to seek private healthcare services, which can be costly. Health insurance is available but may not be affordable for everyone, as premiums can be high and coverage may be limited. Additionally, some specialized treatments or medications may not be readily available in Jamaica, requiring patients to travel abroad for care, further increasing expenses," said a member in Kingston, Jamaica.
