I’m on a private health insurance plan that is still running until the end of the year. I’ll be getting my work permit soon and the ARC, and I have been told that I can, but not have to, join the NHP. Does it make sense to join the NHP as well? Does it make some things easier?
Actually, I’ve been paying health insurance for years without ever getting so much as a flu. I only used it for my regular check-ups and my vaccinations before I came to Asia. But of course, I wouldn’t want to go without it.
Would I be safe to go on the NHP alone as soon as my contract with the private company is over? Or is it advisable to keep a private policy?
I tried to find a thread concerning these questions but wasn’t really successful. Can anybody help me, please?
