What are medical services in Peru like?

Answer this Question

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

"The availability of medications is very dependent on what it is. Until COVID an expat friend had an insulin pump she was able to get what she needed to ensure its proper functioning. I was able to get any meds the local doctor prescribed, but not one my US doctor had. Our insurance let me buy a year's worth at a time to compensate for that," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Arequipa, Peru.

"Peru has a public health system that provides basic medical services to its citizens. Private health care is also available, and many people opt for this option due to the higher quality of care. The country has a number of hospitals and clinics that offer a range of services, including general medicine, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, and dentistry. In addition, Peru has a number of specialized medical centers that provide specialized care in areas such as cardiology, oncology, and neurology," commented one expat who made the move to Peru.
