  • Dominican Healthcare System

    Unfortunately, vacation doesn't always go as planned and some visitors do need Health Care in The Dominican Republic during their holiday. Tourists that end up in a Dominican Republic Hospital most time became sick due to food poising, accidents or diseases. But don’t worry the Dominican Republic has the largest healthcare system in the Caribbean. Here you will find all you need to know about Health Care in the Dominican Republic. The Dominican healthcare system has been undergoing reforms since 2001, which is good news for everyone involved. The old system was underfunded, inefficient, low quality, and resulted in a lot of out-of-pocket expenses for the patients — even the poorest of Dominican society.

  • Necessary Vaccinations and Precautions

    As is always the case when you move to a Caribbean country, living in the Dominican Republic requires expats to take care of vaccinations and immunizations if they want to stay healthy. Aside from routine vaccinations like measles, mumps, and rubella, as well as diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus, there are other health precautions you need to keep in mind. Hepatitis A and B should by now be a standard vaccination for expats who travel abroad a lot to lesser developed countries. If you also plan on spending a decent amount of time outside the cities exploring rural areas and smaller towns of the Dominican Republic, typhoid and rabies vaccinations are definitely recommended.

  • Dominican Medical Services

    In terms of medical services, the Dominican Republic is not far behind other developed countries and even offers far better services than other Caribbean nations in some areas. Its excellent reputation in the field of laparoscopic laser surgery and dentistry, for instance, attracts patients from the Virgin Islands, the Lesser Antilles, and other Caribbean countries who wish to take advantage of the high-quality care. However, most of these high-quality services are offered by private clinics which are well staffed and have the newest equipment. Fees range from DOP 400 to DOP 3,000 — around 65 USD — for the first visit, depending on the clinic. Make sure that your insurance covers treatments at these hospitals.
