Student Health Insurance

Student Insurance

CTU requires that ALL International students have supplemental health insurance. This will help to cover the cost of care that cannot be obtained on campus, especially in emergency situations where hospitalization may be required. In addition, student insurance is included in tuition when students got paid which has already covered parts of costs.

Moreover, based on Taiwanese government law, all foreigners have to live in Taiwan longer than 4 months when they enrolled in Taiwanese National Health Insurance. Therefore, all International students should have Health Insurance in their country or buy short-term Insurance either before they came to Taiwan or after arrived.

Before coming to Taiwan, international students have to obtain this insurance from any independent carrier in their native countries for their first 4 months in Taiwan. This scheme will cover "Hopistal Stay, Medical Operation, Physical Disability, and Death."

National Health Insurance (NHI)

Foreign students who have stayed in Taiwan for more than 4 months and already been issued with ARC MUST join the HNI which you can save much money when you go to see a doctor, and pay 659 NTD per month.
