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

"Healthcare and health insurance in Colombia can be expensive, depending on the type of coverage and services needed. Generally, public healthcare is available at a lower cost than private healthcare, but the quality of care may not be as high. Private health insurance plans are available, but they can be costly and may not cover all medical expenses. Additionally, many Colombians opt to pay out-of-pocket for medical services, as this can be more affordable than purchasing health insurance," explained one expat living in Colombia.

"You can choose any health Ins company you want here, at a very reasonable price. Sanitas was recommended to me many years ago and I love it. My ambulance ride last year (5 hours) Hospital stay, and open Heart Surgery cost me $1 USD for the co-pay and never a deductable here," said another in Florencia, Colombia.
