Until the end of the month I am covered by a European travel insurance. I just received my ARC as part of my Degree Program and remember/read that one has to wait 6 months until being eligible for applying for the NHI.
Because my insurance won’t extend my coverage in times of a pandemic, I am now wondering whether I can already apply for the NHI now, considering I have been in Taiwan since March already (<6 months) - though, I got the ARC only last week.
If I am not eligible, does anyone know of any temporary insurance options for me here in Taiwan? I know, medical costs here arent really expensive. But I would just feel better knowing that I have insurance.
Thanks a lot for the help
