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.
