How are healthcare services India?
When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in India, they replied...
"Healthcare services in India are provided both by public and private organizations. Public healthcare includes government hospitals and urban health centers which provide primary care services as well as specialized healthcare facilities. The quality of public healthcare in India is considered to be low, however, it does have the potential to improve if the government continues to invest in it. Foreign residents have limited access to the public healthcare system in India, with largely only Indian citizens having access to free treatments. There are some cases in which foreigners can enrol in the public system, however this is dependant on the institution and the type of healthcare service being sought. As such, many expats in India opt to access private healthcare services over public ones. Private care providers offer a wide array of services, with many offering treatment packages specifically designed for expats," wrote a member who made the move to India.

"You can get elective surgery and other non-critical non-emergency medical treatment in India. The medical care is good and affordable to a US citizen. Of course you have to be selective which hospital and whcih doctor you may want to seek help from. Quality varies," explained one expat living in India.
