Restructed Payment Options for General Health Insurance Coverage
Application deadline for debt restructuring of General Health Insurance premiums in accordance with Law No.6552 is April 30th, 2015.
General Health Insurance (GHI) premiums are accrued from the maximum rate to those who have not applied to an income test. However, provided that they fulfill their income test obligation until March 31st, 2015, they will be allowed to pay their premium debts based on the amount from their income tests applicable from the date of GHI registration.
Those, who are ranked within the lower income group according to the income tests, will benefit from complete cancellation of accrued premium debts and will also receive health service by means of the allowance to be reserved from the Treasury.
For others benefiting from debt restructure, the interest accrued on the principal of the premium debts will wholly be deleted. The advance payment and the first installment will be payable until June 1st, 2015 within the scope of the aforementioned structuring.
In cases where the premium debt is paid in cash, no default interest will be payable. In cases where the option of payment in installments is chosen, default interest will be recalculated by means of the WPI/PPI (Wholesale Price Index/Producer Price Index).
Those with premium debts within the scope of the general health insurance will be allowed to benefit from the healthcare services immediately after they structure their debts in cash, or after the payment of the first installment.
Application for structuring may be made to the Social Security Center domiciled within the borders of the occupational residence of the applicant.
