Blog - Full health check

Added on Tuesday, 2010-01-26 20:00 CET in category Moscow
In Russia healthcare is free for all persons registered in Russia. Since every person staying in Russia for longer than three days is required to be registered, I get free healthcare too :)

The Russian government encourages people to have a yearly full health check. This includes about any check you would want to have performed, like echo scans of internal organs, X-ray scans of joints, various blood tests, electrocardiography, the lot :)

My wife and I are now starting to do several of these checks. This will be especially useful for me, since I've never actually had any full health check. I believe I'm still doing pretty well physically, but better safe than sorry :)

(The inevitable long lines are just something I'll have to deal with. Take a magazine or PSP or something.)
