Healthcare in Argentina
how does the healthcare system works in Argentina ? Is it efficient ?
What are the main differences between public and private sectors?
Is it recommended to purchase private health insurance in Argentina?
Thanks in advance for sharing your experience !

Re: Healthcare in Argentina
Argentina is great if you have a problem, you go to the hospital and you pay for the treatment.
A blood test for example is $87. To see Accident and Emergency 24x7 doctor as a priority around $35 pesos.
It is always cheaper than your native country IMO. Everyone of my friends have private health care schemes to suppliment their free care as an Argentinian citizen. It just makes sense.
You cannot get private medal care here without a DNI or perm resident visa. Nor can you get a mobile phone on contract and many many other things. You are best to take out insunce in your homeland and claim back what ever paid costs you incur over here.
