Ukraine has reciprocal health-care arrangements with some countries – the UK, for example – but these are only ever for emergency medical care. Americans and others lacking affordable health insurance should at least consider a policy that covers you for the worst possible scenario, such as an accident requiring an emergency flight home.
Ukraine’s health-care system can usually take care of less serious ailments and afflictions – such as influenza, cuts requiring stitches and simple broken bones – at bargain prices.
Of course having the appropriate level of travel insurance is always a good idea as well.
