Are healthcare and health insurance expensive in Nicaragua?
When we asked expats in Nicaragua if healthcare and health insurance are expensive in Nicaragua, they wrote...
"Healthcare and health insurance in Nicaragua can be expensive for some people. The cost of healthcare services and health insurance can vary depending on the type of services needed and the type of insurance plan chosen. Generally, the cost of healthcare services is higher than in other countries, and health insurance plans can be expensive for those who do not qualify for government subsidies. Additionally, the quality of healthcare services in Nicaragua can be lower than in other countries, making it difficult to access quality care," explained one expat living in Nicaragua.
