SGK validity linked to Residence visa end date

I've been covered by SGK health insurance through my Turkish wife's membership for many years. This week I went to a hospital for treatment; they said that I wasn't in the SGK system and would have to pay full price.

I went to local SGK offices who explained that membership is deactivated when your residency visa expires, and that even if you have renewed your residency visa you still need to go along to the SGK office to re-activate it. So now I'm back in, hopefully. I'm just going to check here: https://esgm.sgk.gov.tr/Esgm

Apologies if this has been covered, but it was news to me.

Re: SGK validity linked to Residence visa end date

Yes I'm afraid that was yet another hurdle quite a few of us have had to cross in the past! Once again, different SGK offices were not as strict as others in interpreting the rules but we came across it about 18 months ago when our RPs expired and even though we renewed them straight away we were told we had to revisit the SGK and they had to photocopy the new ones.
In fairness to them we were back on the system within a couple of hours so fair play to them.

Yes it has been covered but İ think it well worth the update you supplied. We have the same problem that when İ renew my residency we have to re-register the SGK but fair play the Alanya office is the most efficient place İ have come across in Turkey ten mins max and all done.

Am surprised that you don't have citizenship in your situ. you could forget about all that residency stuff forever then.
am not being funny here but if I could do it then most can.!
