Are healthcare and health insurance expensive in Vientiane?

Answer this Question

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

"Healthcare and health insurance in Vientiane, can be considered expensive, especially for those with limited financial resources. The quality of healthcare facilities and services in Vientiane varies, with private hospitals and clinics generally offering better care but at a higher cost. Public hospitals, on the other hand, are more affordable but may lack adequate equipment, staff, and resources. Health insurance is not mandatory in Laos, and many locals may not have coverage, making healthcare expenses a significant burden for them. Expatriates and tourists are often advised to obtain comprehensive health insurance before traveling to Laos, as medical evacuation to a neighboring country with better facilities may be necessary in case of serious illness or injury. Overall, the cost of healthcare and health insurance in Vientiane can be a significant concern for both locals and foreigners," wrote a member who made the move to Vientiane, Laos.
