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

Answer this Question

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

"As a foreigner living in Moscow, you will have access to public healthcare, but it is important to note that the quality and availability of services may vary. Public healthcare in Russia is funded by the government, and while it is generally free for Russian citizens, foreigners may be required to pay for certain services. It is recommended that you obtain a valid health insurance policy to cover any potential medical expenses. The public healthcare system in Moscow consists of hospitals, clinics, and specialized medical centers. However, the quality of care and facilities may not be up to the standards you are accustomed to in your home country. There can be long waiting times, outdated equipment, and a lack of English-speaking medical staff in public healthcare facilities. Many foreigners living in Moscow choose to use private healthcare services, which offer a higher standard of care, modern facilities, and English-speaking staff. However, private healthcare can be expensive, so it is essential to have comprehensive health insurance coverage. In summary, while you will have access to public healthcare as a foreigner living in Moscow, it is advisable to have health insurance and consider using private healthcare services for a better quality of care and convenience," said another expat in Moscow, Russia.
