***Foreign Students' National Health Insurance fee has been adjusted:Foregin students' National Health Insurance Administration of the Ministry of Health and Welfare issued an annoucement of the adjustment of the National Health Insurance fee. From January 1, 2021, the insurance premium is adjusted from TWD 749 (per month) to TWD 826 (per month).
二、保險費繳納方式及金額 Process of Payment
The cost of National Health Insurance (NHI) should be included in the tuition fee every semester if you are eligible to underwrite an insurance policy under NHI. The cost is TWD 826 each month (according to the fee criteria set by NHI), so payment per semester is TWD 4,956 (from September to February and March to August). Newly arrived students can underwrite an NHI insurance policy only when they have received ARC for six months. Thus, they join the group medical insurance instead at a cost of TWD 500 per month.
