I have a question regarding health insurance when outside of Taiwan.
Currently have ARC card and the national health insurance, but this is only good for when I am actually in Taiwan. Does anyone know where I might be able to obtain any extra insurance which would cover me when I am outside of Taiwan? Is there any kind of extra policy I could purchase in Taiwan which could be as an addendum to the NHI coverage? I checked some travel insurance companies online, but those I have found do not offer policies for residents of Taiwan.
I have seen those booths at the airport which sell insurance, but my Taiwan friends & colleagues told me that they only cover the actual flights in case of some accident. Not any type of health coverage after reaching the destination.
There is a link on the NHI website stating that they will reimburse for emergency care costs when traveling abroad, but knowing how the system works here, I’m sure they would find a multitude of reasons why they would not be offering any reimbursement. Rather than taking a chance, I’d prefer to be a bit more proactive about this.
