My wife is in disbelief that these shots aren't covered by the national health thingy. You guys sure about this?

When my kids were born, they were. In fact, one time for a booster the nurse didn't have the right shot so she drove her personal scooter to go get a refill.

Total cost? 100 TWD.

However, because JianBao is in the shit financially, they have been cutting things back.

I looked up some earlier discussion on two optional vaccinations that are offered and not covered by health insurance. One optional shot is the pneumonococcal coujugate injection, another is rotavirus. The cost for each shot under the schedule for these two has been quoted anywhere between 3,000 and 6,000. I haven't had these pushed upon me by doctors for over a year, so my information could be a little old. I am not sure what new ones are out there, either.

The five illnesses covered in the 5 in 1 are covered under the health insurance scheme, if you have the 3 in 1 then the other 2 in a separate dose.

My wife said her work did all the paper work for her. And my wife says if your wife's work doesn't let her take the 6 month rest then that's illegal and she can threaten to sue.

But my wife's factory did it all for her....she just handed them her ID and a few other things.

Here's some different places talking about it in Chinese: http://tw.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%E8 ... =utf-8&v=0

after reading this thread I'm a little confused.

my wife plans to take a 育嬰佳 'yu ying jia', something like a nursery leave. She told me it's a law from 2008 and that she will get about 60% payment of her basic salary, which is about 30% of her real monthly income, paid by some governmental organization ("gong bao").

time frame: max. one year, the mother must return to work before the child has completed his/her 3 year. My wife is Taiwanese, no idea about foreign ladies.

I think these are two distinct laws.

We are planning to leave Taiwan for a while.

This isn't the same thing you guys are talking about right? I hope not. It says a lump sum for 30days based on the last 6 months pay:
