Healthcare in Argentina

Argentina Offers Good Healthcare in Buenos Aires and Other Cities

Healthcare in Buenos Aires is generally good, but it varies in quality outside the capital. Hospitals have trained personnel, many of whom have studied abroad. In some other parts of Argentina, the hospitals may not have the most up-to-date equipment, but what is available is adequate for an emergency situation.

Serious medical problems requiring hospitalization and/or medical evacuation to the United States can cost thousands of dollars or more. Doctors and hospitals often expect immediate cash payment for health services. A visit to a doctor in Argentina costs anything from $17 to $50 (for a specialist). Foreign visitors requiring medical attention are advised to go to the British and German hospitals.

Most pharmaceutical drugs can be purchased over the counter without a prescription. The pharmacist can also recommend remedies for common ailments, such as flu, stomach disorders, headaches, etc.
