Are healthcare and health insurance expensive in Korea?

Answer this Question

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

"Healthcare and health insurance in Korea can be expensive, depending on the type of coverage and services needed. Generally, the cost of healthcare in Korea is higher than in other countries, due to the high cost of medical services and the lack of public health insurance. However, the government does provide some subsidies for those who cannot afford health insurance, and there are also private health insurance plans available. In addition, the government has implemented a number of measures to make healthcare more affordable, such as capping the amount of out-of-pocket expenses for certain treatments and providing subsidies for certain medical services," said another in Korea.
