Most expats in Ghana will rely on private medical insurance that includes coverage for emergency evacuation. This ensures that in an emergency you can access the best possible health care.
There is an enormous range of insurance companies that provide coverage to people in Ghana, and an equally enormous range in associated costs. When researching prospective insurance companies, be sure to research the specific details coverage, payment processes and whether or not the offer long-term expatriate rates. It is also wise to ensure that your plan includes emergency evacuation, should the local healthcare prove insufficient.

With so much to deal with before leaving your home country, (taxes, moving house, paperwork etc.) the careful planning of your expatriation to Accra is an essential step. As far as healthcare is concerned, your local social security scheme won’t be accompanying you to your host country and, once abroad, you might be surprised by the care system you find in Ghana. So, before leaving, make sure you have appropriate cover!
