General Informations for Students


Insurance

All the people living in the boundaries of our country have been taken into the scope of General Health Insurance. In terms of the right of having General Health Insurance and meeting the treatment costs it can be stated that the students having income by working at a place and the ones who have their own social security are in the scope of Health Insurance without having to take any other actions.

The students who don’t work at any place, the students who are provided with social security by their family members, and the ones that are under the age of 25, should be identified in the system of the Social Security Institution to the name of the family member (such as father, mother, husband or wife) who is going to provide their social security. These procedures should be updated by means of submitting the student certificates that are supplied concerning the education terms to the Social Security Centers.

Without an age limit, the students whose families don’t have any social security or the students who are already 25 or older are to follow some procedures. If the students have no family members with social security or they are already 25 or older, and per capita income among the students’ family members is determined as less than one third of minimum wage, the students are taken into the scope of General Health Insurance and their expenses are met by the Social Security Institution. If per capita income among the students’ family members is determined as more than one third of minimum wage as the result of the income detection, the students are taken into the scope of General Health Insurance by the Social Security Institution, but they are told to pay the determined sum of money monthly.

Our exchange students and the students of foreign nationality are strongly recommended to have health insurance valid in Turkey before they come, as a precautionary measure.
