The Malaysian government provides healthcare at a subsidized rate, so the majority of Malaysians rely on government funded health care.
If you are not covered by the public scheme, most companies provide a basic insurance policy for their employees. These policies tend to provide limited coverage so it is best to secure additional private insurance. Private healthcare companies can be found in Kuala Lumpur and offer adequate international expat insurance.
To find the right company for you, request free quotes from providers.
With so much to deal with before leaving your home country, (taxes, moving house, paperwork etc.) the careful planning of your expatriation to Kuala Lumpur 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 Malaysia. So, before leaving, make sure you have appropriate cover!
