Cayman Islands residents may be referred to overseas hospitals and other facilities for specific medical procedures that are either unavailable or not commonly performed on-island. Premature babies, people visiting specialists or having complicated surgery, as well as those injured in a bad accident, are often airlifted to the United States for treatment.
Thankfully, Cayman benefits from a state-of-the-art hospital which specialises in cardiology. See Health City Cayman Islands in our Local Hospitals section. Check with your insurance company about in-network services abroad or for pre-approval of treatment. Make sure to leave plenty of time for approval, before going overseas for treatment, otherwise you may be required to pay the full amount up front.
The Government offers an Overseas Medical Loan for Caymanians (with proof of citizenship and other criteria), who have a medical emergency that requires overseas treatment. This loan should be sought only after all other options (bank loan, family help or health insurance) have been exhausted. Contact email@example.com or the Treasury Department on +1 (345) 949 7900, ext. 2141 or 2135.
Cayman Airways offers special medical fares to residents who are referred overseas for medical care by a local doctor. There are also a number of hotels in Miami and Baltimore that offer special medical rates.
