Medical Insurance Options for Expats in the Dominican Republic
Obtaining medical insurance in the Dominican Republic is essential for a number of reasons. As such, there are a few private health insurance options available:
International health insurance
International health insurance is a highly recommended option, as these plans are especially designed for globally mobile expats and frequent travelers. With an international plan, you can enjoy comprehensive coverage for healthcare virtually anywhere in the world, as well as avail unique features such as emergency evacuation and repatriation benefits.
Local health insurance
You can also choose a local Dominican Republic health insurance plan, but your coverage will be limited within the DR only. If you're planning on spending most of your time in the DR and will rarely travel overseas, then this may be the best option for you.
If you're only traveling to the Dominican Republic for a short trip, travel insurance may be the best option. With a travel plan you can enjoy coverage for emergency medical treatment and repatriation costs, as well as travel-related mishaps including flight delays and cancellations. Please note that this plan is best suited for those traveling to the DR for a short period of time.
