Heathcare In South Korea

Medical care is generally good in Korea, although expensive. Healthcare is not provided free of charge in Korea for foreign nationals and medical bills can be high.

There is no reciprocal National Health Service agreement in Korea and medical costs are to be borne by the individual. Insurance is essential; ensure that comprehensive travel insurance is taken out before you travel. Make sure that your policy provides for the following:

  • An air ambulance, in case you need to be flown home
  • Full medical cover (bills can be very expensive)
  • Bringing the body home, in the event of a death
  • Bringing your family home, in the event of your illness or injury

If you need emergency medical assistance, you can attend any medical clinic, Hospital Emergency Room or dial 119 for an emergency.
