Hey people, I have a moral concern I was wondering I could have help with.

I have a former employer whom I worked for for 2 years message me after the end of our contract to ask me to pay on a final health insurance bill that he failed to calculate before I left the country.

The cost is 250 000 won. To me this is a little much.

My moral dilemma is, should I pay this? Whose fault is it that if this is a legit bill that is wasn't calculated into my final pay and severance? Will it affect my chances of returning to Korea if I decide not to pay?

Any advice would be great. Thanks.

He wants 4-5 months worth of NHIC payments AFTER you have left Korea?

Personally, I would ignore it. It sounds fishy to me and it won't affect a return to Korea nor will it affect a future visa application.

If the NHIC was under paid they will collect it directly from you when you return and re-enroll in the NHIC.

If it wasn't NHIC then it was a scam and you can feel free to ignore it anyway.

Employee contributions to NHIC are just under 3% of gross salary.

4 months salary @2.2 million won /month = 8.8 million won.
3% of 8.8million won is 264k won.
