What are medical services in Brasilia like?

Answer this Question

When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Brasilia, they replied...

"Medical services in Brasilia, are generally of good quality, with both public and private healthcare options available. The public healthcare system, known as the Unified Health System (SUS), provides free medical care to all citizens, including emergency services, primary care, and specialized treatments. However, the public system can be overcrowded, leading to long waiting times and limited resources. On the other hand, private healthcare facilities in Brasilia offer a higher standard of care, with modern equipment and well-trained medical professionals. Many expats and wealthier Brazilians opt for private healthcare due to shorter waiting times and better quality services. Private health insurance is recommended for those who can afford it, as it grants access to a wider range of medical services and specialists. Pharmacies are widely available throughout the city, and many medications can be purchased over the counter without a prescription. However, it is essential to have a prescription for more potent medications or controlled substances. In case of emergencies, Brasilia has several well-equipped hospitals with emergency departments, including public and private facilities. Ambulance services are available, but response times can be slow due to traffic congestion. It is often faster to take a taxi or private vehicle to the nearest hospital in an emergency. Overall, medical services in Brasilia are adequate, but it is essential to have proper health insurance coverage and be prepared for potential delays in the public healthcare system," said a member in Brasilia, Brazil.
