Don't Get Sick or Hurt in This Country!

Just getting sick can be a nightmare but becoming gravely ill or seriously injured in the wrong country can be your worst nightmare! If you live to tell your story, you make it your mission to WARN others. A Health Risk Map 2015 prepared by International SOS shows how risky it could be if you get sick or injured in a particular country. BTW, if you have health insurance are you covered when traveling to other countries? (tsn)

I have had congestive heart failure, PAD, COPD, an aorta valve replacement, diabetes, etc and I have had the best care--being poor I don't worry about being sick in another country--can't afford to travel there! :O)

Our system is a state social security system where everyone is covered (including actually foreigners with no insurance, but it will perhaps not last long, as some people are coming here to have medical health care for free, and it costs a lot). I know that I am covered by reciprocal agreements in all Europe and a few other countries in Africa and Asia. For the rest, I need to subscribe to a private health insurance.
