Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information on the list is provided directly by the local service providers; the Department is not in a position to vouch for such information.

Please note that Medicaid/Medicare do not apply outside the United States and your private medical insurance, especially HMO-type insurance policies, may also impose limits or do not apply overseas;  contact your insurance provider for more information prior to travel.  No private or government medical facility in Uzbekistan will file insurance claims; only cash, often in advance of treatment, is accepted.  Consider visiting a travel medicine clinic before you leave for Uzbekistan.   Further information may be found at:  http://www.cdc.gov.

Medical and dental care is available in several government and private hospitals and clinics in Uzbekistan, though the quality of services can be suspect.  Pharmacies are common throughout Tashkent but the risk of counterfeiting or ineffective medications is high.  In all cities of Uzbekistan except the capital, Tashkent, regular ambulance service can be reached by dialing 03. When dialing from mobile phones, please dial 03 or 103.  In Tashkent city, the number for regular ambulance service is 103.

Some HIV/AIDS entry restrictions exist for visitors to and foreign residents of Uzbekistan.  Uzbek law mandates that visitors carry a medical certificate attesting that they are not infected with HIV and that visitors staying more than 15 days be tested.  However, this requirement is rarely enforced except in cases of long-term visitors on work permits.  Please verify with the Embassy of Uzbekistan at http://www.uzbekistan.org before you travel.
