Healthcare in Moscow

Healthcare in Moscow is organised by the Moscow Health Care Department. While public healthcare facilities are available, most expats seek out private healthcare at international medical centres. Expats are advised to take out private medical insurance if it is not provided to them by their company. 

Public healthcare in Moscow

While subsidised healthcare is provided to everyone living in the country, and is paid for by the state and the mandatory health insurance system, doctors are known to refuse to treat patients without a bribe first. Professionals in the state system are also likely to speak little to no English. 

Private healthcare in Moscow

There are a number of private, international medical centres in Moscow where English is spoken and where the healthcare is on par with expat standards. 

These clinics are generally very expensive, so it is highly recommended that expats take out private medical insurance to cover medical expenses in Moscow. Most insurance coverage plans will also include evacuation cover for emergencies or life-threatening situations. Expat-friendly healthcare facilities in Moscow include:
