When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Australia, they replied...

"After living in the Northeastern US and then Texas, coming to Sydney has been a dream for me and my family. My son broke his femur and required emergency surgery, a week stay in the hospital, 8 months of physical therapy and then another surgery, our cost was $40 to rent a chair for the shower. I will never willingly live in the US again," explained one expat living in Sydney, Australia.

"Australia has a comprehensive public health system that provides high quality medical services to its citizens. The public health system is funded by the government and provides free or low-cost access to medical care. Private health insurance is also available for those who wish to access private medical services. Australia has a wide range of medical services available, including general practitioners, specialists, hospitals, and community health services. The country also has a strong focus on preventative health care, with a range of programs and initiatives aimed at promoting healthy lifestyles," said another in Australia.
