Private Health Insurance Taiwan Experiences?

Postby cantaloupealone » 14 Jul 2016, 12:17

I have NHI insurance, ARC, and long term Taiwan plans with hubby. I am mostly happy with NHI, but I am considering getting private insurance *just in case* of chronic disease or dismemberment by motor scooter suddenly occurs.

I have been doing some reading here and around other forums, most of the threads are out of date.

Does anyone have current and up to date advice or names of private insurance companies? Thank you!

I got mine with a local company -Nanshan- and I pay an arm and a leg due to previous conditions plus being overweight. If you are younger and in good shape, it should be reasonable. They have extensive coverage, mainly for the usual - medical treatment beyond NHI, private room and nurse/aide, and as you said, if you become sick/hurt and cannot work anymore, that is also covered.

I have a local one because I live here and I do not use international services. Maybe someone can pitch in with an update on international insurance companies.

Thanks Icon. I will check it out. In the meantime, I have also heard that most banks in Taiwan offer packages of health and life. Any one out there try insurance from the bank?
