SGK 15% increased premium
 
As expected, following the 15% increase in the Turkish minimum wage, the SGK premium for foreigners (GSS) has increased by the same % amount to 706.32tl.
In recent years the increase has always matched that of the minimum wage - last year increasing by 26%.
The increase takes effect from 1 January and covers the full year. When foreigners were first accepted onto the scheme, around 10 years ago the increase came twice a year (Jan and July) but in recent years it has been an annual increase.

What is the cost for a married couple please? is it just the cost above X 2 ?

A married couple 9under pensionable age) pays the one premium as the wife is regarded as a dependent. After pensionable age she is not a dependent (as she has her own income), and then must pay SGK (as a foreigner).

I found it considerably cheaper to just use private health insurance

Private insurers don't want to know you if you are over 60. For me 706TL for two is reasonable. Years ago we were with BUPA but I shudder to think how much that would cost now.

Just checked using my own weight height and health but using 62 instead of my sprightly 56 as my age and still would be a very reasonable 1800 tl a year with Groupama
Similar price right up to 65
Then no coverage

Re: SGK 15% increased premium
 
Is the Groupama real coverage in case of need or is it just a cover to get residency?

Well you take the basic and then add a few extras ( essentials) and its still working out way cheaper than SGK
