The availability, cost and quality of Philippine medical care is a key consideration for foreigners considering retirement in the Philippines.  Since U.S. Medicare does not provide coverage in the Philippines, many retirees are responsible for paying for their own care and ask how affordable medical care is in the Philippines.

Below we list the prices of  some common medical procedures as published by the National Kidney Transplant Institute in Quezon City, Metro Manila.  These prices should serve as a rough yardstick to prices to be expected at Philippine hospitals.  There will be variations depending on whether you are and outpatient or inpatient.  If you are an inpatient, the quality of your hospital room will affect the price of just about every treatment cost.  If you have a luxury suite you’ll pay much more for just about every service than will a patient in a ward.

    • On our blog we have listed a few prices for a few medical procedures at Manila hospitals. These may be out of date. We have no way to check on the price of medical services in your area. You will have to contact local medical providers and get quotations from them. Best wishes Bob and Carol
