We asked retirees if they have access to good medical care in Vietnam. They wrote...

"Healthcare is available, and their are also clinics and hospitals for foreigners. Dentistry is good and very cheap. Close and inexpensive," remarked another expat in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

"Vietnam has a system of universal health care providing medical treatments that are free or subsidized. The country has both traditional and modern medicine options available, such as traditional Vietnamese medicine, Chinese medicine, and Western approaches including hospitalization, surgery, and medications. Quality of care varies, with urban areas of the country having better access to higher quality care than rural areas. Many facilities in rural regions happen to be basic and poorly equipped, with limited supplies and information. Health insurance is available and encouraged, though employers are not required to provide it to the population. Private care is often the preferred choice for those that can afford it," said a member in Vietnam.
