Does SGK covers chronic illnesses. SGK 2018
« on: January 05, 2018, 09:18:29 AM »
Many SGK registered friends contacted me and asked if there is a change on regulations for chronic illnesses
I have seen many news at forums about that.

Regulations explained on SGK web site as written down;

''Yabancı uyruklu kişiler hangi sağlık hizmetlerinden yararlanabilir?
Yabancı uyruklu kişilerin; genel sağlık sigortalısı veya genel sağlık sigortalısının bakmakla yükümlü olduğu kişi
sayıldığı tarihten önce mevcut olan kronik hastalıkları dışında kalan diğer hastalıklarının tedavisi genel sağlık sigortası
kapsamında karşılanmaktadır. ''

That means you are not covered for chronic illnesses which is coming from back.For example When you first registered SGK if you have diabetics, you are not covered for diabetics.
But if SGK insured person has new chronical illnesses after the registration started then its fully covered

I heard that Esnaf hospital rejected free treatment of a SGK registered Foreigners cataract surgery, I called the expert at SGK and asked about if there is a new regulation. They informed me as I have informed you above. If this is a new health problem its fully covered. There is no change on regulations.
