In keeping with its modern infrastructure, Panama offers a high quality health care system. Find out more below.
First-rate medical care can be found, particularly in metropolitan areas of Panama. Many of the doctors are US trained and the standards of care and expertise in the top hospitals compares favourably with the United States.
Private health insurance is available and affordable in Panama, with doctors’ fees and hospital visits much cheaper than in many other countries, due to a low cost of living. As a result, prescription drugs are not expensive and often for sale simply over the counter.
Despite relatively low medical bills, they can mount up to thousands for a hospital stay plus follow-up appointments and it is highly advisable to take out private medical insurance if you are planning an extended stay in Panama. Medical Insurance can be obtained from brokers in Panama with prices ranging from USD 35 to USD 150 per month, depending of course on your age and the cover you require.
