Medical Care

A legitimate concern of travelers and expats is what to expect for emergency or even routine medical care. Fortunately we’re living in a modern age and medical care is rapidly improving across the former Soviet Union.

Emergency numbers:

Ambulance – 03              Fire – 01            

Police – 02                       Emergency Rescue – 0911

Dial 03 from any phone for public Ambulance service.


In the event of an emergency in Moscow, the U.S. Embassy will try to assist in arranging medical care for U.S. citizens. For assistance during working hours, please call 728-5577. After 6:00 p.m., please call the Embassy duty officer at 728-5000.

Acceptance of insurance in lieu of prepayment is rare. Most patients pay in cash and receive reimbursement from their insurance companies upon their return to the United States. State medical care is officially free of charge, but the quality of service ranges from unacceptable to merely uncomfortable. However, Russian doctors often demand payment for disposable needles, medications, and some services.
