Does the Fulbright Program provide my dependents with medical insurance while they are in Uruguay?
No, it does not. You should provide medical insurance for accompanying dependents at your own expense.
Where will I receive medical attention?
The Fulbright Commission recommends that you seek any needed medical treatment at Montevideo’s private Hospital Britanico, which is the health care provider for the U.S. Embassy. When you arrive in Uruguay, you will receive contact information for the Hospital’s many English-speaking doctors.
