    How do you get medical treatment in Buenos Aires when you need it? Is care similar, or very different from where you are from?

    Do you need to register with a local doctor (GP)? Can you make an appointment quickly? How long before you can see a doctor?

    What is the cost (drugs, treatment, reimbursement…)?

    Where do you buy your medicine in Buenos Aires ? Are pharmacies all the same? Are most drugs over-the-counter, or prescription? Are there some prescriptions that hard to find?

    How does the hospital system work? What are the main differences between private and public care? Do you need/recommend private health insurance in Buenos Aires ?

    Please share your experiences so new/future expats can prepare. Thanks in advance for you tips and advice!
