How Can You Access Healthcare When Living in India?
While non-Indian nationals living in India are entitled to access and use the public healthcare facilities on offer, the vast majority of global citizens who relocate to the country choose to use the private sector, and take out an international health insurance package to facilitate this and reduce their treatment costs.
Healthcare in most of India’s private hospitals is in line with Western standards, while private facilities are also accessible for regular check-ups, consultations, and non-urgent appointments. While most of the private healthcare provision is centred around India’s main cities, private health facilities can be found across the country, so ensure you check what your local provisions will be prior to moving to the country.
Although some employers will offer private health cover to relocated employees, often this cover is only eligible in certain hospitals or only covers basic treatments and costs.
