Re: Health insurance

We have been with GŁneş sigorta for 14 years. Our premium has gone down every year as we had no big claims for the first twelve years. After we had been with them for 10 years they assured us they would cover us for the rest of our lives with only the small normal increase of premium every year. Last year my husband had major emergency heart surgery and GŁneş were great. The surgeon wrote to them stressing how important it was and although I was asked by the hospital if I would cover the cost in the event that the insurance wouldn't pay, GŁneş had agreed and confirmed within 24 hours. Aftercare is totally paid as was the 13 day stay in a first class hospital and my stay also in the hospital for eight days with him. (The food was superb.......I wanted to stay!!!) After all this we were a bit concerned if he would be covered again this year or if there would be conditions attached but apart from losing his no claims bonus which was about 200TL our cover has continued as before. We joined when we were 54 and 57 years old and our premium is less than 8,000TL a year which to me is excellent value considering the claim of nearly 50,000TL!

Re: Health insurance

I have heard a rumour that SGK will only cost 53TL pm after April instead of the 200+TLpm at the moment.
Has anyone else heard this?.

or more lıkely go up by 53tl----sgk ıs great as the payment each month covers man and wıfe and chıldren but ıts not so good for sıngles and couples who are not legally marrıed who have to pay the same amount and once youve got ıt your stuck wıth ıt and ıve heard of many havıng beaurocratıc problems wıth ıt. I sımply walk ınto my guneş offıce whıch ıs near to my apartmewnt put my money down ,have a nıce coffee wıth them and the lady prınts out my new documents ---no messıng about sorted ın 1 hour and as thıs was my second year wıth no claıms ıt was 200 lıra cheaper at 1600tl cuz of no claım last year .But ım pretty healthy apart from a few aches and paıns and ım buılt lıke a tank.BUT everyone ıs dıfferent so best ıf you do your homework on several dıfferent companıes plus sgk and see what suıts you best.

Re: Health insurance

Hi Kibris hope you are well and good to see all the comments re health insurance Sounds like you have found a good company there .Re mobile phones I understand that I have to register my phone within 120 days is this easy enough to do and what is the average monthly contract prices also I will be bringing my laptop with me so wondering about monthly cost of internet too. I know someone who lives in Dalyan and they are always complaining that the internet is mega slow ?
