Retirement, state of healthcare & transferable insurance?

Given my interest in retiring to Mauritius, I would like to know the state of healthcare there. Is my insurance transferable?  Any information would be greatly appreciated.


Mauritius has a hybrid healthcare system with both a government funded public system and a private system comprised of clinics, specialized medical centers and private practices.

Citizens and residents of Mauritius (expats under work, resident and occupation permits) are entitled to health services at public institutions.

Most expats though tend to opt for private healthcare  though their insurance covers as private institutions generally offer higher end support and environment with less waiting time in case of urgent situations like surgeries.

You will have to check with your insurance company if you are covered in Mauritius.
