According to the National Health Insurance Act, Foreigners staying in Taiwan for over 6 months are obligated to take out the insurance policy under National Health Insurance (NHI).
However, new students who are coming to Taiwan for the first time cannot join Taiwan's NHI until the 7th month of their arrival,
before that, new students can choose "The Cathay Life Medical Insurance", a one-time payment of NTD3,000 for 6 months (NTD500 per month *price might change).
Or, bring your ownmedical care insurance certification and with verification by Taiwan's Embassy & Mission.
