Emergencies

Public hospitals will admit anyone in need, while private hospitals admit only paying clients. Private hospitals will accept a foreigner's health insurance if international costs are covered by the plan.

For common illnesses such as a sore throat, go to a pharmacy where the pharmacist will assist you. Depending on the pharmacy, prescription medicine can be dispensed without a prescription.
