Health Insurance |
Before traveling to Ukraine, it's recommended that you contact your insurance company and find out if its policy applies overseas and which health expenses it may cover. As a rule, cover is rather limited. It's advisable to shop around and choose the most appropriate one, as prices and conditions might vary greatly. Note that the Medicare and Medicaid programs pay for medical services only in the USA.
In addition to your medical insurance you can buy Ukrainian Medical Insurance at the border. This insurance is not obligatory at all and may cost about $10-15 depending on the period of your stay.
There are no vaccination requirements or other special requirements for international customers visiting Ukraine.
As of medical facilities, Ukrainian standards of care are different from American or Western European standards. If you need some prescription medicine, take it with you, as only basic supplies may be available in Ukraine.
