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

"Uruguay offers a comprehensive range of healthcare services, including primary care, hospital care, mental health services, and specialized care. The public healthcare system is managed by the Ministry of Public Health and is available to all Uruguayan citizens and legal residents. The quality of public healthcare is generally good, with access to modern medical technology and a wide range of treatments. Foreign residents are also eligible to use the public healthcare system, although they may need to pay a fee for certain services. Expats in Uruguay can use the public healthcare system by registering with the Ministry of Public Health and obtaining a health card. This card allows them to access the same services as Uruguayan citizens, including primary care, hospital care, and mental health services," remarked another expat in Uruguay.

"I suggest to newcomers that they sign up with the private healthcare offered by the state at a discounted rate. Under this care you are offered all the conveniences of regular doctors and hospitals. This includes diabetes care, high-blood pressure care, cancer care and treatment etc," said a member in Paysandu, Uruguay.
