Singapore: According to a recent survey, Taiwan offers the best and cheapest medical facilities for expatriates across the globe. Around 66 percent expats said that they enjoyed higher quality and better healthcare service in Taiwan. Through the survey expats also indicated better healthcare services in four other countries, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, UK, and Japan.
The online poll surveyed 9288 expats from more than 100 countries. "Nearly seven in ten expats said that they spend lesser on healthcare after moving into Taiwan. Upon relocation, all the expats and their employers are required to register with the National Health Insurance system, which grants them access to medical and dental care," said the survey report.
Since 1995, the Taiwan government has implemented the national insurance scheme that can cover all the citizens. The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office said that Taiwan has adequate health and dental facilities to handle routine, emergency and outpatient treatment.
