Re: Health Insurance

You may find you can't get insurance over 65

Re: Health Insurance

As far as I'm aware, there is no upper age limit for applying for SGK

Re: Health Insurance

Unless things have changed you can still join SGK after 65, it is just that over 65's do not have to have insurance to apply for an RP.

Re: Health Insurance

What I meant by my above post is ....yes you can get SGK over age 65, but there are no companies to my knowledge that will give you a private medical insurance if you are 65 or over (well there aren't in Didim)

Re: Health Insurance

My wife and I have SGK. I am 81 my wife 84 years old, we have had SGK since we first came to live here in 2007, just the one payment of 487liras per month covers us both, which when converted into Sterling is about 72 pounds per month. Cheap enough.

Sorry made a mistake on the year we started paying the SGK. It was 2011 or 2012 when it became compulsory...... when we were both in our late 70's. Butt007

Are you looking for a permanent contract?

It has to be SGK. As already said, it's practically impossible to get private medical insurance over 65. If you prefer private treatment you can go to an SGK-linked hospital and pay the difference, which is about 30%. Not all private hospitals have a partnership.

If you need extended travel insurance for up to 6 months at a time there are several companies, you need to search online for ' longterm travel health insurance'.
