  4. If you get Turkish Citizenship will you get a reduction in the amount you pay the SGK?
  5. Please I need some help regarding my husband health insurance, on the 2 July he will be 65 years old, and I read that people over 65 years old, does not need a health insurance for RP.

  6. To apply for any type of residence permit in Turkey, you must have health insurance coverage meeting certain minimum standards for the type of treatment provided, and the percentage of the cost which will be paid according to your health insurance policy. If you have been a legal resident of Turkey for one year or more, you can apply for the Turkish government's comprehensive health insurance plan, provided by the Sosyal Güvenlik Kurumu (Social Security Administration, or SGK), often called "SGK insurance." SGK already meets all minimum standards, as do private Turkish policies issue
  7. The Turkish government requires all foreign residents to have a health insurance policy which meets minimum coverage requirements. When you apply for your residence permit online for the first time, and when you extend it, the online system will ask you for your health insurance information, including the effective dates of the policy and the policy number. You will also need to take the policy, or other documentation according you your situation, to your appointment (for first-time applications) or mail it in (for extensions). Bilateral Health Care Agreements Between Countries Some c
  8. If your home country has a bilateral agreement for healthcare coverage in Turkey, you don't have to buy health insurance in Turkey. You just have to get a Medical Insurance Entitlement Certificate from your home country, take that to the Sosyal Güvenlik Kurumu (Social Security Administration, or SGK) office, and get a letter from them to take to your residence permit application appointment. If you are extending a residence permit, you need to mail the SGK letter with your extension package. Here is what you need to do. 1. Get the Required Documents from Your Country If your country i
  9. To apply for a residence permit, you must have health insurance which meets minimum coverage requirements, and which is valid in Turkey. You must include a copy of your policy in the package you submit with your residence permit application. Why Turkish Private Health Insurance Might Be Your Best Option Private health insurance from a foreign country will only accepted if the provider has an office in Turkey SGK insurance can only be applied for after you have legally resided in Turkey for more than one year, and it is for life--you cannot cancel it unless you are leaving Tur
  10. Turkey has a national health insurance plan, managed by the Sosyal Güvenlik Kurumu, (Social Security Administration, or SGK). Once you have legally resided in Turkey for at least one year, you can enroll. After you pay the first premium, you are covered. You will get an SGK health insurance ID card which you can present at any state hospital and be treated, without charge. Some private hospitals also accept SGK insurance, but since treatment at private hospitals is more expensive than at state hospitals, there may be additional charges you will need to pay in cash, or have them cove
  11. We've had a few questions in our residence permit health insurance forum about what exactly is covered by a Turkish private health insurance policy. So I took this information directly from my own health insurance policy, from Groupama, and I present it here to give you an idea of what is covered. The first year is limited in coverage, to screen out those who might come in with pre-existing conditions requiring immediate care. But after the first year, you will get full coverage. Make sure you get one of your insurance company's cards with your policy number. With that, the hospital or other h
  12. Hi, I searched all the links about SGK on this site but could not find the exact information I am looking for... I have questions about the SGK enrollment process, premium payments, and coverage. I'll describe below what I figured out piecemeal, hoping it can be helpful to anyone else who needs to know what to do. I am a US citizen on my third residency permit and have a cheap private insurance that meets the minimum ikamet requirements. However, I had heard that foreigners can enroll with SGK if they pay a monthly premium. I had also heard that the state healthcare system offer
  13. My wife and I have had a place in Kalkan for many years and have decided to apply for residency when we return next week. At age 65 I am having a problem finding a health insurance company offering affordable cover and wonder if anyone can help with a solution. SGK doesn’t require over 65s to have health insurance to qualify for the Residency Permit but does anyone know if I can join SGK at 65 without having to buy private health cover for my first year of residency?
  14. I've written several guides about the health insurance requirement for residence permits. They're based on the Turkish laws and official documentation, as well as the literature of the health insurance companies which provide insurance for expats in Turkey. I also work with a representative of Ankara Sigorta (Ankara Insurance), who has been very helpful in clearing up any ambiguities in the law. You can find my articles here: Health Insurance for Your Residence Permit Articles If you have a question which isn't covered in these articles, or in the forums, I will personally go to the
  15. Other than living in Turkey for over a year with a residence permit, what are the requirements for SGK insurance? Do I need to have a job with a work permit? I think that's what I was told at the local SGK office a year ago.
  16. I met today with Erdoğan Akyüz, a representative of Ankara Sigorta (insurance). I asked him about how we could obtain health insurance coverage for two years, if we are applying for a two-year short-term residence permit. He said Ankara Sigorta now offers a two-year health insurance coverage package. This involves two separate one-year health insurance policies--the first for year one, the second for year two. The day after the first policy expires, the second one becomes active, providing continuous coverage for two years. Both insurance policies would be bought at the same time. We
