Healthcare in Korea is modern and impressive. Under the National Health Insurance (NHI) plan, a combination of both Eastern and Western medical practitioners are available for patients to consult. Apart from this government plan, a number of private health insurance options are also available; albeit being less recognized and costing a little more. At Asia Expat Guides, we want only the best healthcare policies and the most precise of information to reach you. It is important to note that expats are not covered by the NHI plan or any forms of private health insurance unless they have received their Alien Registration Card.
Our team of professionals are well-informed and can advise you on the best forms of healthcare policies for expats. We can share with you the tradeoffs of the NHI plan versus private healthcare insurance. For instance,while the NHI plan might be cheaper, certain international clinics are not covered under this government program. Some procedures and medication, particularly those associated with chronic illnesses are also uncovered.
If you are unfamiliar with any Korean health insurance matters, our team at Asia Expat Guides are glad to help you. Our personal advisors are sensitive to you and your family’s needs. We don’t want you to worry about cost and the extent of coverage amongst the different healthcare policies. We have your sole interests at heart and we guarantee nothing less than a healthy and protected transition from your host country to Korea. We only ask for you to sit back, relax, and look forward to your stay in Korea!
