How to make a doctor’s appointments

To receive fast and convenient treatment, it is highly recommended to make an appointment. Appointments can be made by phone or by visiting the hospital. Some hospitals receive medical appointments by fax or through their homepage. Bring your health insurance card to your appointment. Fill out the medical appointment form and submit it to the Patient Affairs Division.

Payment for medical treatment

Medical fees can be paid by credit card in most hospitals. The Patient Affairs Division receives the medical fees. Hospitals with international clinics receive the medical fees in the relevant clinic, or the international clinics help with the payment process. Most general hospitals issue the receipt in English. The medical fees vary depending on whether or not a patient has insurance. Some hospitals accept overseas health insurance. For overseas health insurance coverage, the relevant patients can claim their expenses with their insurance company after payment.
