What you need to know about medicine in Armenia?

There are many good specialists and modern medical centers of general and special profile in Armenia. In 2018, there were 102 hospitals and 540 polyclinics and medical centers in the country. In our catalog you can check information about clinics and laboratories.

Citizens of the Republic of Armenia and holders of a residence permit receive free medical care in state polyclinics at their place of residence. However, not all services may be available there, plus you have to stand in lines, so many residents take out insurance or go to paid clinics.

Pregnancy management is paid even for residence permit holders. More about this in our article.

Non-residents are entitled emergency medical care (numbers 03, 103, 112 or 911). Centers also provide it for a fee. "Erebuni" (tel. 8119), "Armenia" (8103), "St. Grigor Lusavorich Medical Center" (8115). It should be noted that the bites of homeless animals, which are many in Armenia, also belong to emergency assistance. For a list of places to contact in this situation, see Yerevan Municipality website. If the facility of your choice does not have a vaccine, you will be referred to the right one. Emergency care does not include treatment of fractures.

What documents are needed?

Required documents when visiting a doctor under an insurance policy:

  • identification;
  • social card (issued free of charge at the passport office at your place of residence / registration);
  • insurance policy.

If you did NOT take out health insurance, you only need to show your passport and pay for a visit to the doctor.

How much do medical services cost?

On average, a visit to a therapist will cost 6,000-9,000 AMD, and a visit to a doctor of a narrow specialty will cost from 8,000 to 15,000 AMD.

Payment is made at the medical facility's cash desk in cash or by card.

      Medical examinations are carried out in any paid or public clinic. The list can be found in our catalog. But the certificate is only needed to obtain the rights of categories “C”, “D”, “T”, “CE”, “DE”, “C1”, “D1”, subcategories “C1E” and “D1E” for the first time. For other categories and subcategories, you will be asked to undergo a medical examination if there is a suspicion that you have a disease that interferes with driving.
