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

"I don't know how to characterize my health insurance plan. It is from Brazil but it is not a public plan. It is a private, Brazilian plan (Unimed Rio). And it is good. The medical care is excellent and although the plan is about what I'd pay in the States, I can get more for the money," wrote a member who made the move to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

"Brazil has a comprehensive public health system, providing free medical care to all citizens. Private health care is also available, and is often of a higher quality than public health care. Brazil has a large number of hospitals, clinics, and medical centers, and many of them are well-equipped and staffed with experienced professionals. Brazil also has a number of specialized medical centers, such as cancer treatment centers, and centers for the treatment of infectious diseases. In addition, Brazil has a number of medical research centers, which are dedicated to researching and developing new treatments and technologies," explained one expat living in Brazil.
