Medical Assistance

Medical and dental care in Buenos Aires are acceptable but vary in other areas, particularly in rural zones. Doctors, dentists, clinics, and hospitals generally require immediate payment, in cash, for services provided. U.S. medical insurances are not always valid outside the United States. Medicaid-Medicare does not provide coverage outside the United States. In some cases, medical insurance that covers medical evacuations from foreign countries has proven useful.

For more information about health risks, travelers should visit the Centers for Disease Control website.
