Health Insurance

Health Insurance in the TRNC is extremely difficult, if not an impossibility to obtain for those over the age of 70.  Any expat that can afford the premiums will typically take out cover from a UK company. 

The TRNC government has talked about introducing an "affordable" insurance scheme for some time now but having had three governments in the past year it makes reaching a consensus on what type of scheme difficult.

There are now a number of reasonably affordable schemes providing "Emergency Health Insurance", from some of the local insurance companies. Some of these claim this will be deemed as sufficient for the ‘White card’ requirements but this has to be verified once the scheme comes into force.

They offer a policy that covers a whole range of injuries and medical conditions from car accidents, severe hypertension, heart attacks, organ failures, broken bones and a whole range of other medical disorders at the emergency stage and pay treatment up to the value of your policy until the stability stage is reached.

There are different levels of cover with some of them so do check carefully to ensure you have the right one for you.

It’s worth shopping around as prices vary and some policies come with additional benefits.
