When we asked expats in Vietnam if healthcare and health insurance are expensive in Vietnam, they wrote...

"Healthcare and health insurance in Vietnam can be expensive, depending on the type of care and coverage needed. Private healthcare is generally more expensive than public healthcare, and health insurance premiums can vary depending on the type of coverage and the provider. In general, healthcare costs in Vietnam are lower than in many other countries, but they can still be a significant expense for many people," explained one expat living in Vietnam.

"Cigna is expensive for us simply, because when we go to the USA we are not covered. So, we get a travel insurance and pay out of pocket for most heavy expenses. For example, I had to be hospitalized on a visit home and I didn't even reach the 5K deductible. It's frustrating. I get reimbursed for other expenses that I incur for example, dental emergencies etc. I am reconsidering how to deal with this situation in the next year," said another expat in Da Nang, Vietnam.
