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

"I don't know if I can give advice concerning medical centers as long as I need medical help not that often. Here I can share my experience in medical treatment in Kyiv or Kiev. For me it was necessary whether the clinic works with International insurance companies and in which way. I was suggested to pay myself and then make the reimbursement of the expenses. I was given all the necessary documents and didn't have any trouble with my insurance company," explained one expat living in Kiev, Ukraine.

"Healthcare services in Ukraine are provided by both public and private institutions. The public healthcare system is funded by the government and is available to all citizens of Ukraine. The quality of public healthcare varies depending on the region, but generally it is considered to be of a lower standard than private healthcare. Foreign residents are able to access the public healthcare system, however, they may need to pay for some services. Expats in Ukraine typically use private healthcare services, as they are more reliable and of a higher quality. However, some expats may choose to use the public healthcare system if they are unable to afford private healthcare," said another in Ukraine.
