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

"Healthcare services in India are predominantly provided by the public sector although there is a growing presence of private providers. The primary healthcare providers in India are general practitioners, often referred to as 'barefoot doctors', who mainly operate in rural areas. Secondary healthcare providers include specialist and super-specialist doctors who are available in major cities. India has an extensive network of hospitals which range from sophisticated corporate and research hospitals to more rural primary health care centres. The government subsidizes certain medical treatments and services, including medications and primary care. Additionally, the Government runs many health insurance plans through its national programs. Access to healthcare in India is highly variable and remains a problem in many areas," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to India.
