The National Health Insurance program is mainly financed by the premiums shared by the insured, employers and the government. The premiums received by the National Health Insurance Administration are used to help the insured pay for their health care expenses.

We want to emphasize that National Health Insurance premiums only go toward defraying actual medical expenses. Employee salaries and administrative costs associated with the National Health Insurance program itself are all paid for by the government and under no circumstances is premium revenue used to cover the costs of these items.
