Healthcare in Rio de Janeiro

Healthcare in Rio de Janeiro is available in the form of both public and private facilities. Although expats living in Brazil with permanent residency status are able to access free public healthcare in, most opt to access healthcare at private institutions. This is largely due to the poor quality of the public health system. 

Private healthcare in Brazil is among the most expensive in Latin America. It’s essential for expats living in Rio de Janeiro to have comprehensive health insurance. Expats moving to Rio as part of a corporate relocation package often have their health insurance costs covered by their employer.

The standards of private health facilities in Rio are generally high. The city even earned a reputation as a medical tourist hotspot, particularly in the field of cosmetic surgery. Many private institutions offer special sections for international patients with English-speaking staff.
