Medical Care in Russia: For Tourists & Expats

The healthcare system in Russia has a poor reputation.  This is unfortunate since many long-term foreigners in Russia have found great medical service at a fraction of the cost of what they would pay in their home country, and a growing number of foreigners are even making special travel plans for medical treatment that is both world-class and unique to Russia.  During this session we will discuss the basics of health care for long-term expats and why some foreigners are making the trek to Russia for medical treatment.

Speaker: Andy Frecka

Nice job, gentlemen. It would be great to hear your thoughts about Vladivostok. In fact, it would be great to hear your thoughts about other cool cities and regions in Russia, and experiences like the Trans Siberian Express. You guys have a lot of personal knowledge to share and you communicate well. Thanks a lot.
