My flight was scheduled to be on July 7th, just after the end of my contract. Now I am here until August 11th due to the cancellation and rescheduling of my flight.
I am on an APRC and open work permit, so I am sustaining myself by teaching private classes. When I asked about this, I was told to just keep my receipts and show them payment by electronic transfer in my bank book for non-cash payments. So far, so good.
However, I just went to the doctor, and I am no longer insured. I should have seen this coming but I didn’t. I have been to the NHI website to try to figure out how to make payments but cannot seem to find out which category I fit into.
Would I be regarded as unemployed? Surely not because I can get earn enough to survive. I will go to the place in Tamsui that deals with this (I think it is near Carrefour) tomorrow, but can anyone tell me what might happen in a situation like mine?
Also, I have no idea how labor insurance works when I am in this situation, so advice there would be appreciated.
