Moving to Taiwan to Study...Health Insurance questions!
Posted December 13th, 2012 - 6:46 pm by from Bristol, England (Permalink)
Hi all,

I'm moving to Taiwan for 1 year to study Mandarin and I think i've taken too many risks without having health insurance already, I have a feeling im long overdue a visit to A&E...

Can anyone answer some questions I have about health insurance in Taiwan?

1. I've read something about the National Health Insurance Plan - Am i right in thinking that A) I have to pay for this at around £200per year, b) this isn't actually health insurance?

2. Where can i find some reasonable, cheap health insurance in Taiwan, and how much am I likely to pay for a year?

Thanks for any help, any other advice is appreciated!

Which school are you applying for? I did some quick research online and it seems that you have to register for our National Health Care right at the school you study at.(since you are here as a student, not an independent employee, the fee varies according to your position.) Anyway, I suggest that you make a direct contact with your school here, that might be helpful. :)
