Hi there, 

Argentina provides free or highly subsidised healthcare of a high standard but you need to make an appointment for non-emergency situations. This generally means long waiting times as a large percentage of the population use these services so for that reason many expats opt for private health insurance. 

For more info, have a look at the Expat Arrivals pages on healthcare in Argentina and healthcare in Buenos Aires

Hope this helps!
