Whether you are visiting a doctor, picking up your prescription, or undergoing a medical examination, you must bring your National Health Insurance card to any contracted health care institution (identified by the National Health Insurance logo in their
doorways) in order to be treated under the health insurance program. You will be required, however, to pay a registration fee and copayment.
If you don’t have your National Health Insurance card with you when visiting the doctor, you must first pay all medical expenses out of your own pocket. But you can have the expenses, minus the required copayment, refunded if you bring your National Health
Insurance card and receipt to the health care institution where you were treated within 10 days.
