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

"Healthcare services in the United States vary greatly depending on where one lives. Generally speaking, access to healthcare is reliant on having health insurance, either through private plans or through the public programs such as Medicaid or Medicare. Most healthcare services are provided by private physicians in private clinics, though at different levels of quality. There are also a number of government-run healthcare services, such as community health centers, clinics, and hospitals. The overall cost for healthcare services in the US is typically high, with nationwide insurance plans and price regulations that vary from state to state. Furthermore, the US healthcare system is not always well-tailored to the needs of its citizens, with some areas lacking in certain services, or with care being highly concentrated in certain areas," explained one expat living in United States.
