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

"Healthcare services in Argentina are provided by both public and private institutions. The public healthcare system is funded by the government and is available to all citizens and legal residents. The quality of public healthcare varies depending on the region, but generally it is considered to be of good quality. Foreign residents are able to access the public healthcare system, but they may need to pay a fee. Expats in Argentina typically use the public healthcare system, as it is often more affordable than private healthcare. However, some expats may opt for private healthcare if they are able to afford it," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Argentina.

"As a newcomer, one of the first things you should do is buy international heath insurance that can be used at any private facility in the country. They are options for private insurance that can be bought from an individual private hospital but then if they do not have the equipment needed you will have to pay out of pocket to go to another facility. So with an international health policy you can be treated anywhere you choose. This is the type of policy I have. It also covers me anywhere else in the world and I have chosen to have the US option as well. The insurance is affordable and COMPREHENSIVE. If you have a medical condition, bring your doctors notes and copies of your prescriptions," commented one expat who made the move to Buenos Aires, Argentina.
