International Students Group Medical Insurance

Introduction

International students must register for health insurance during their stay in Taiwan. Students staying in Taiwan with a valid Alien Resident Certificate (ARC) for over six months continuously must enroll in National Health Insurance (NHI). Prior to registering for NHI, we will automatically enroll you in Group Medical Insurance.

Note: If you would like to use another insurance that you have purchased from your home country instead of joining Group Medical Insurance, you must have the insurance verified by the Taiwan Embassy/Mission in your home country.

The Group Medical Insurance fee is a one-time payment.

NTD 3,300 for 6 months (NTD 550 per month *Price subjects to adjustment).

Students who wish to purchase Group Medical Insurance for the first 6 months of their stay in Taiwan can sign up at the OIA on the day of enrollment.
