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

"Australia has a comprehensive universal healthcare system, known as Medicare. The system covers individuals and families, providing free or affordable access to medical, dental, and other health related services. The Australian Government has invested heavily in healthcare over the years, making it one of the leading healthcare systems in the world. Australians can access subsidised health care through Medicare, or opt for private health insurance to cover additional services like those provided by specialists. The government also subsidises medications, making prescription medications more affordable. Australians also enjoy a range of preventative health services, including counselling services, pregnancy and infant care, immunisations, and mental health services," remarked another expat who made the move to Australia.
