The Bureau of National Health Insurance adopted the use of an IC card for all individuals enrolled in the program beginning on January 1, 2004. The card generally carries a picture of the insured, making it unnecessary to bring your ID to the medical institution
as personal verification when seeking medication attention. . The chip embedded in the card stores your records of last 6 medical visits, information of catastrophic illness, records of all important examination, and medication information, which will be helpful
when you see a doctor.
