Which health system per country?

Selon le pays où vous allez vivre, étudier ou voyager, votre couverture santé peut être différente. Le Global Health Security Index ou GHS évalue les systèmes de santé de près de 200 pays dans le monde. Différents critères d’évaluation sont utilisés: infrastructures médicales, risques politiques, environnementaux, fragilité du système de santé public…etc.

La carte ci-dessus présente le niveau des infrastructures médicales qui permet de savoir si vous pourrez être soigné dans votre pays de destination pour tous problèmes de santé. Sinon il faudra pour certaines pathologies vous faire rapatrier dans un autre pays. Une assurance santé à l’étranger est indispensable pour les pays ne bénéficiant pas d’infrastructures médicales adaptées. Une assurance est aussi indispensable dans les autres pays tout simplement pour couvrir vos frais médicaux puisque vous n’êtes plus dans votre pays d’origine où vous bénéficiez d’une couverture santé. Vous pouvez être ruiné par un problème de santé dans des pays comme par exemple les Etats-Unis, le Canada, Singapour, la Chine. Les tarifs médicaux peuvent être très élevés. Une assurance santé pour l’étranger couvrira vos frais de santé. On ne parle pas d’une consultation ou d’un médicament mais on parle ici de VRAIS problèmes de santé, notamment de maladies infectieuses, de maladies redoutées ou de traumatologies suite à des accidents de la route ou de la vie impliquant une hospitalisation avec des frais de santé bien au delà de 50.000€ et beaucoup plus.
