Healthcare in Chicago is first-rate but very expensive. All expats must have health insurance for themselves and their family as medical expenses will often need to be paid upfront or be guaranteed by an insurer.
Most expats hired by a large company will have insurance through their employer, which usually also covers family members. There are various levels of coverage, including levels of different deductibles, dental and optical coverage that should be discussed with the employer.
Below is a list of the most prominent hospitals in Chicago.
