How Much Do Health Procedures Cost In Gibraltar?

Monday November 04, 2019 (15:19:03)

The cost of healthcare in the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar will depend on a number of factors, namely whether you as an expat:

• are signed up with the national insurance scheme, the Group Practice Medical Scheme (GPMS)
• have private insurance
• have a combination of national and top-up private insurance to cover procedures (such as dental and optical care) which do not fall under the national scheme
• do not have insurance at all and are intending to pay out-of-pocket for any treatment that you receive.
