Do I need international health insurance in countries that provide free healthcare?

Countries like the UK, New Zealand, and Italy have public healthcare systems funded by national insurance contributions from taxpayers. However, these services may not be fully available to people who aren’t citizens of the country, so having international health insurance may still be necessary. It can also offer other benefits, including access to doctors who speak your language and medical evacuation or repatriation if urgent treatment isn’t available where you are.
