If you have insurance that provides for the provision of medical care abroad, payment for treatment is made by the insurance company. Insurance pays for emergencies. Chronic diseases cannot be treated under insurance. In the absence of insurance, medical institutions may require you to pay for services in cash, and the amount will be quite decent.
