Ukraine Insurance Guide
After a long history of oppression, famine, and a world-shattering disaster, Ukraine finally regained independence after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. It has also had to deal with the cleanup from the Chernobyl nuclear disaster and now the recent civil war after the Euromaidan protests. Today, Ukraine’s population stands divided amongst Ukrainian and Russian populations, which has generated a severe amount of civil unrest in the nation.
Recent Developments – Invasion by Russia
In February 2022, Ukraine was brutally invaded by Russian military forces. This has led to widespread destruction and loss of life. Ukraine has made some gains in the battlefield and regained some territory, but unfortunately, this war will not be over any time soon.
War Risk Coverage for Ukraine
We are able to source emergency medical, evacuation and personal accident coverage for many foreigners visiting Ukraine or posted there, often by NGOs, but we will require a lot of detailed information about your activities there and security arrangements.
Healthcare in Ukraine
The healthcare system in Ukraine is fairly developed compared to the rest of the world. There are adequate resources and hospitals available, but primarily within populated cities like Bucharest. Ukraine’s healthcare system is on par with most developed countries in the world, but only in private clinics and hospitals where medical care can be quite expensive. However, the invasion by Russia has put considerable stress on the healthcare facilities in most of Ukraine so expect that obtaining medical treatment there will be very difficult.
