Group Insurance Applicants for Different Categories of the Insured

According to Article 15 of the National Health Insurance Act, group insurance applicants for different categories of the insured are as follows:


To become a group insurance applicant

  1. Apply online
  1. A firm, trade name, or foreign labor employer may become a group insurance applicant through the Administration’s online service and handle first-time insurance applications for its staff.
  2. A firm or trade name can simultaneously register its establishment and become a National Health Insurance group applicant through the One-stop Online Service, and the firm or trade can also simultaneously handle initial insurance application for staff. Those yet to hire employees cannot apply online.
  3. Once the National Health Insurance group applicant is established through online application, the Ministry of Economic Affairs will transmit the approved materials directly to the National Health Insurance Administration (NHIA); the applicant need not enclose the photocopies of related supporting documents. The number of working days needed is reduced to one and the processing status of the case can be found directly on the website.
  4. Once a group insurance applicant is in place, to enroll or to withdraw from the program, to make any change, or to make inquiries online in the future, the Business Certificate (or the registered NHI IC Card of the person in charge) and the Natural Person Certificate (or the registered NHI IC Card of the handling person) are required to become registered in the Multiple Certificate Online Underwriting System, through the website of the National Health Insurance Administration (NHIA).
