Medical care costs in Malaysia can be quite costly especially at private clinics and hospitals. A number of Maldivians living in Malaysia have incurred huge expenses on account of medical bills. It is advisable to take insurance cover to protect you and your family against an unforeseen sudden financial burden while you are overseas.

Taking comprehensive insurance cover for personal accidents and hospital and surgical insurance is important. However, if you find this to be financially burdensome, you can opt to take a medical insurance package that provides cover for at least a minimum of surgical and hospitalization expenses which would cover hospital room and board and surgical fees.
