Yep. It's helpful, especially when you get sick.

What else would you like to know? Wink

Does anyone have any information on health insurance in Turkey? I'm not there. Do they have national insurance? What status do you need to get insurance? Is the ex-pat insurance very expensive?

If you're legally working, you have national insurance. 95% of teachers aren't, so they don't. Most private universities/high schools will also give you private insurance, which is very good. I'm not sure how much it would cost to buy it yourself, but I think it's about 200 Lira to add someone to a policy, so it might be around that.

I just made another post to learn about work/residence visas and especially how they related to health insurance.

Is this thread still basically valid: that if you're working legally (I presume with a Work Visa) you're automatically covered.

BUT, the implication being, most teachers get by with a residence visa, and if they want coverage they can access local private insurance, which is probably going to better/preferable for anything significant anyway.
