Asia is, for many of us, synonymous of mystery and is a continent which becomes more and more attractive not only for tourism, but also for studies, work or even to expatriate. However, Asia is a huge continent with many different countries, and their health systems are just as different. There is no model that can be applied to the whole continent as the situation varies from one country to another. The situation is such that the health systems of two neighboring countries can be extremely different.
Indeed, Asia has medical costs that can be either very affordable (such as in Indonesia) or very expensive (Singapore), the quality of the cares can be either basic (Cambodia) or excellent (Japan) and the accessibility is very different regarding where you are. Many risks are present in Asia: risks about the hygiene, local diseases, risks about the wildlife, or even the pollution which is an important aspect to take into consideration and which leads to many health problems, especially in China and in India. These two countries are so big that the situation within there territories can be very different depending on your location. China offers high quality cares that are easy to access in the big coastal cities, however, in some isolated areas, quality cares are quite difficult to find.
Because of all the differences on the health system of Asian countries, it is very important to prepare an international health insurance that might be adapted to your destination. Most of the time, it is better to go to private institutions, even if they are more expensive, but are offering cares with a better quality and using modern equipment’s. Your international health insurance gives you the opportunity to get access to these medical acts whatever is the situation.
