Frequently Asked Questions

1) Who Can Take Out Policy?

Foreigners of 18 to 56 years old who have applied for residence permit in Turkey can purchase private health insurance.

2) How will I get service?

At a Contracted Healthcare Institution

If you receive healthcare service from an ASK-2 Contracted Healthcare Institution, a representative of the healthcare institution can receive authorization from our Authorization Center on 24/7 basis. When you apply to a contracted healthcare institution, you should present your health insurance card and picture attached identity card to the institution. All procedures related with your health insurance will be carried out by the representative of the healthcare institution on your behalf. In this case, since Ziraat Sigorta will make payment directly to the healthcare institution, you will only pay the contribution payable by you, if any, and any expenses which are not covered by the policy to the healthcare institution. For a non-emergency hospitalization, if you obtain authorization from your insurer 24 hours before, procedures and formalities will be performed more rapidly.

At a Non-Contracted Healthcare Institution

If you apply to a non-contracted healthcare institution or a private physician, you must have the claim form completed and signed by the physician who did the examination. Documents and information required for assessment of the expenses incurred at a non-contracted healthcare institution are as follows: Claim form, photocopy of test results, original invoice(s) of the expenses, and prescriptions and package labels of drugs, if any.

For inpatient treatments, in addition to the aforesaid documents, hospital discharge report with anamnesis, itemized invoice of the hospital, photocopy of observation file, surgery report, traffic accident report and intoxication report in the case of traffic accident, are required.

If you get examined at a non-contracted healthcare examination and get your tests and treatments performed at a contracted healthcare institution, our authorization system will step in. When you show the claim form completed by the attending physician, your health insurance card and picture-attached identity card to a representative of the contracted healthcare institution, authorization procedures will be started. In this case, you can get your tests and treatment done by paying your contribution. This practice also applies to our contracted pharmacies.
