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

"Colombia has a public healthcare system that provides basic healthcare services to its citizens. The quality of public healthcare in Colombia is generally considered to be good, with a wide range of services available. Foreign residents in Colombia are able to access the public healthcare system, although they may need to pay for some services. Expats in Colombia typically use the public healthcare system, although they may also opt to use private healthcare services. Private healthcare services are generally more expensive than public healthcare, but they may offer more comprehensive services," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Colombia.

"Pay the higher insurance premium to insure quicker access to specialists. Have at least a working knowledge of the language as most doctors speak no English. ," commented one expat who made the move to Colombia.
