Whether you are visiting a doctor, picking up medicine or having a test done, you can bring your National Health Insurance card (NHI card) to any contracted health care institution (identified by the National Health Insurance logo in their doorways) to be
treated under the National Health Insurance program. You will be required, however, to pay a registration fee and co-payment.
If you don’t have your NHI 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 co-payment, refunded if you bring your National Health Insurance Card and
receipt to the health care institution where you were treated within 10 days.
