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

"Healthcare and health insurance in Argentina can be expensive, depending on the type of coverage and services needed. Private health insurance plans are available, but they can be costly and may not cover all medical expenses. Public health insurance is available, but it is limited and may not cover all medical costs. Additionally, many medical services are not covered by public health insurance, and patients must pay out of pocket for these services," remarked another expat who made the move to Argentina.

"We have had wonderful experience with the private healthcare in Buenos Aires. My husband had a tumor and was seen right away - within hours. We have international health insurance which means we can choose to go to ANY PRIVATE HOSPITAL WE CHOOSE. The coverage is very comprehensive and affordable for us. If you need info, please contact me," explained one expat living in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
