General Health Insurance

According to Turkish legislation, all international students have to be insured by Social Security Institution (Sosyal Güvenlik Kurumu – SGK). This insurance is optional  if  you have your own insurance. In order to start your GHI, you should have a temporary citizenship number (resident permit).

Your GHI covers your treatment from the hospitals which are in agreement with Social Insurance Institution. Your insurance begins as soon as the university enrolls  you in the system  of the Social Insurance Institution. 

You are  required to pay the amount  determined as “the minimum  premium amount” monthly to maintain insurance during your education.  

You do not have to create/have an account in one of these banks to make your payment. You can pay for insurance without an account card  etc.  when  you use  these banks' ATMs.
