My SGK-insured father recently agreed to undergo surgery to correct a problem he had with his vertebrae in Alanya at the private Baskent hospital. The total price for the surgery was less than 3000TL and was paid before the operation. However, something happened during the surgery that supposedly necessitated the installation of two titanium screws at extra cost of around 10000TL.What do you think are the chances that there's some sort of fraud involved instead of a genuine need to save my father's well-being? Just thinking quick it certainly occurred to me that the surgeon may have anticipated such a need before the operation but neglected to inform my father of this as he would not have agreed to such an expensive operation. Of course there are many other possibilities like the lack of any actual need for such costly extras.Do you have any suggestions how one could proceed in this sort of a situation?
Hi, I'm intending to move to live in Istanbul for a few months. I want to get SGK cover, how do I go about it if I am not employed? From what I know I need to be employed for a minimum amount of time. What about those who are self-employed? Any advice would be appreciated.
Hi Everyone:First of all thank you for making yourselves available to answer questions. I find this to be very helpful and encouraging!I'm a perspective medical student in the United States. I was born and raised in Ankara, Turkey. My Turkish is fluent, but my grammar is lacking. I'm going to be finishing my baccalaureate degree very soon. I have options here in the US but not sure if I would be allowed to work in Turkey as a practicing physician, and honestly, I dont want to live in the states.My questions:- Would I be able to attend a medical school in Turkey, say Marmara Tip Universitesi?- What would the application process look like and would I have to take entrance exams, if so which ones?- How do people handle the cost of schooling here? Do they take out loans like we do in the US? How much would it cost?I tried looking up some of this information on the Marmara website but was unsuccessful finding very much information.Umarim yardimci ola bilirsiniz. Thank you ahead of time:Nadir
