Students should take care of insurance-related issues on their own.

The CLC strongly recommends students join overseas insurance or related insurance plan in their home countries.

Taiwanese National Health Insurance (NHI) is only eligible for foreigners who hold ARC and stay in Taiwan for consecutive 6 months to apply and join. Foreigners who have not joined NHI will need to pay full bills (which might cost a lot) if they see a doctor in Taiwan.

□ National Health Insurance (NHI) Qualification:

Those who have been staying in Taiwan for consecutive 6 months after they receive the ARC can apply for the National Health Insurance (you may leave Taiwan once for less than 30 days; and after excluding the days you are out of Taiwan, the days you stay in Taiwan shall be exactly 6 months in total).
