Are healthcare and health insurance expensive in Nairobi?
When we asked expats in Nairobi if healthcare and health insurance are expensive in Nairobi, they wrote...
"Healthcare and health insurance in Nairobi can be considered expensive, especially for the average citizen. The cost of healthcare services and insurance premiums largely depends on the type of facility and coverage one chooses. Private hospitals and clinics tend to charge higher fees compared to public facilities, which may be more affordable but often face challenges such as overcrowding and limited resources. Health insurance is not mandatory in Kenya, and many people opt to pay for medical expenses out-of-pocket, which can be financially burdensome in cases of serious illness or emergencies. Additionally, the quality of healthcare can vary significantly between facilities, with more expensive options generally offering better services and amenities," remarked another expat who made the move to Nairobi, Kenya.
