As is the case in many cities around the US, healthcare in Columbus is a contentious issue. Though the city – and indeed country as a whole – has good-quality healthcare available, access is very much limited due to high costs and little government assistance for low-income individuals.
To ensure access to Columbus hospitals and to cater for day-to-day healthcare expenses, we recommend taking out a robust health insurance policy. This can be either with a local or international health insurance company. These companies will often have a list of recommended healthcare providers, and some policies cover only select hospitals and doctors, so if insurees have a particular hospital in mind, they should check for limitations before signing up. Some employers will pay for or subsidise employees' health insurance.
Here is a list of recommended hospitals in Columbus.
