Portuguese health system

Get informed about Portuguese health system and issues related with Portuguese insurances and healthcare in general. Medical Port provides face-to-face or remote appointments where foreigner citizens can be clarified about which are the alternatives available for them.

Portugal is a country privileged for having a healthcare system with high quality. It is considered the 9th best in Europe and the 12th best in the world, in terms of overall efficiency, according to the last publishing on the theme (December, 2019) by World Health Organization.

The health system in Portugal is composed by the public health system (which is named SNS – Serviço Nacional de Saúde) and the private healthcare providers. In general, foreigners have many questions when they need to decide which one they should attend.

Slide1

At Medical Port, a foreigner citizen can have a face-to-face or remote appointment (during 30 minutes) in English to be clarified what are the best options available, how to use insurance and how to act in different situations or contexts.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PORTUGAL

The Portuguese health system may be arduous to learn for a citizen who arrived recently to Portugal. However, an assertive and clarifying talk with a professional in the area, addressing the right and essential topics, can make clear how the country works in terms of health.

As an OECD country, Portugal has various types of financing: government schemes, compulsory health insurance, voluntary health insurance, out-of-pocket, among others. A clear explanation about the theme will make you acknowledge how your health consultations and treatments will be financed, choosing the right options for you.
