Expats moving to Vienna can rest assured that when it comes to their health they will be well catered for as Austria boasts one of the best healthcare systems in Europe.
Thanks to tax contributions, everyone living and working in the city is entitled to healthcare services in Vienna. As a result of this and the excellent standard of public healthcare in Austria, most people don't take out private health insurance policies. However, expats who have the option of private healthcare as part of their employment package should definitely take advantage of it, as it allows them access to a greater number of services and shorter waiting times.
Pharmacies are well stocked and readily available in Vienna. They can be found along any major shopping street, mall or located close to a hospital.
