The Bahamas country (Commonwealth of the Bahamas) is an archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean composed of numerous Islands next to the United States Florida coast.  20% of the Islands are habited by Nationals, expats and tourist.  About 350,000 people live in the Bahamas which total size is 13,940 km2 . Historically, thousands of people from Cuban and the Caribbean Island Hispaniola moved to southeastern Bahamas centuries ago. Several centuries later, French, Spanish and UK citizens settles in the Bahamas. More recently, in the middle of the 20th century, United Kingdom set up a government to reflect British Commonwealth model. The Bahamas is a parliament democracy based on the British political system.

Healthcare system in the Bahamas

The Healthcare system in the Bahamas is composed of both public Healthcare and Private Bahamas Hospitals. Since the Bahamas is composed of a multitude of Island, access to Health care is generally difficult as there are several medical facilities in a multitude of Island.

If you travel to the Bahamas we recommend you get some information about the opening hour of the medical facility close to your destination.

The quality of treatment you can find in the Bahamas can vary. Generally, US Medical insurance plans will not cover you in the Bahamas.
