How are healthcare services in Chile?
When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Chile, they replied...
"Chile offers a wide range of healthcare services, including primary care, hospital care, and specialized care. The public healthcare system in Chile is known as FONASA, and it is funded by the government and administered by the Ministry of Health. The quality of public healthcare in Chile is generally good, with access to modern medical technology and a wide range of services. Foreign residents in Chile are eligible to use the public healthcare system, although they may need to pay a fee. Expats in Chile can use the public healthcare system by registering with FONASA and paying the required fees. They may also be able to access private healthcare services, depending on their insurance coverage," wrote a member who made the move to Chile.
