As a foreigner living in Chile, will I have access to public healthcare? What is it like?

"Yes, as a foreigner living in Chile, you will have access to public healthcare. The public healthcare system in Chile is known as FONASA and is funded by the government. It provides basic medical services such as doctor visits, hospitalizations, and laboratory tests at a low cost. The quality of care is generally good, although there may be long wait times for certain services. Additionally, there are private healthcare providers in Chile that offer more comprehensive services at a higher cost," remarked another expat who made the move to Chile.
