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

Answer this Question

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

"As a foreigner living in Managua, you will have access to public healthcare, but the quality and availability of services may vary. Public healthcare in Nicaragua is provided through the Ministry of Health (MINSA) and is generally free of charge. However, the public healthcare system is often underfunded and understaffed, which can lead to long waiting times, limited availability of medications, and outdated equipment. Many expats and foreigners choose to use private healthcare facilities, which offer better quality care and shorter waiting times, but at a higher cost. It is recommended to have comprehensive health insurance to cover any medical expenses in private facilities," said another in Managua, Nicaragua.
