As a foreigner living in Nassau, will I have access to public healthcare? What is it like?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in Nassau if they have access to public healthcare in Nassau. And, if they do have access, what is it like. They wrote...

"As a foreigner living in Nassau, you will have access to public healthcare, but it may not be as comprehensive as the healthcare system in your home country. The public healthcare system in the Bahamas is managed by the Ministry of Health and consists of clinics, hospitals, and other medical facilities. However, the quality of care and availability of resources can vary, with some facilities being better equipped than others. In general, public healthcare in the Bahamas is considered to be of a lower standard compared to private healthcare facilities. Public hospitals and clinics can be crowded, and waiting times for appointments and treatments can be long. Additionally, some specialized treatments and procedures may not be available in the public healthcare system, and you may need to seek private care or travel abroad for certain medical needs. It is recommended that foreigners living in Nassau consider obtaining private health insurance to ensure access to a higher standard of care and a wider range of medical services. Private healthcare facilities in the Bahamas are generally better equipped and staffed, providing a more comfortable and efficient experience for patients," said another expat in Nassau, Bahamas.
