How is health care in Turkey?

Turkey has universal health care for its inhabitants called Genel Sağlık Sigortası.

If you are registered with the Social Security Institution (SGK), you will receive free healthcare from hospitals and facilities from SGK. You are eligible for this care if you have been living in Turkey for at least a year and have paid to the socialized system.

Turkey has a thriving private health care system, which is relatively affordable to pay for its own account compared to the medical costs of many people's home countries.

fact, Turkey's private health care system has made such progress lately; the country has established a name in the medical tourism industry, so that people travel to Turkey to seek medical care that is both quality and affordable.

Many non-Turkish citizens opt for private care and insurance while living in Turkey. This is mainly due to the high quality of the staff and the private medical facilities and finally the Turkish language barrier.
