Anyone relocated to Rwanda will receive care that is at least of the standard available to Rwandan nationals. This is provided for through private health insurance. Referrals for specific care that cannot be provided within Rwanda can be made under the insurance contract to a third country, with consent of the individual, and as confirmed by a medical referral board. In narrow cases where referrals made are not covered by the insurance contract, the cost will be covered by the Government of Rwanda.
