Health facilities in Majuro and Ebeye are adequate for routine medical problems. There are few or no health facilities available elsewhere in the Marshall Islands. Most outer islands have medical dispensaries. Serious medical problems may require medical evacuation to the United States.
Prescription and over the counter medicine may not be available. Doctors and hospitals generally expect immediate cash payment for health services. However, the local cost for service is quite minimal.
