Emergency Health Insurance

Alternative to Health Insurance - Emergency Stability Health Insurance

A medical emergency rarely comes with a warning, that is why it is advantageous to have emergency medical insurance cover.

Azant Insurance Agency in conjunction with Zirve Sigorta are pleased to offer this emergency health cover with the Near East Hospitals here in the TRNC. Importantly, it should be understood that this is not a Health Insurance policy that will provide cover for any ongoing sickness or long term illness.This is a product for getting you stable following an agreed medical emergency.

There are four options available to you:-
                                     INSURANCE COVER/PACKAGE                 PREMIUM
Emergency only:                              25,000 TL                                   860,00 TL
Emergency including check up*:     25,000 TL                                  3.550,00 TL
Emergency only:                              50,000 TL                                  1.770,00 TL
Emergency including check up*:     50,000 TL                                   5.200,00 TL
Whilst this policy is for treatment in Near East Hospitals within the TRNC only (please see list below), in any life threatening emergency you should get care from the closest hospital that can help you. That hospital will treat you regardless of whether you have insurance, but you must be aware that your Near East Emergency Health cover for Near East hospitals will impose a reduced payment of up to 25%.  

In all non life threatening situations, we would recommend you go directly to any Near East A & E department as a covered condition can be dealt with easily as you are already registered within their system. If you choose to go elsewhere,  it is imperative that you contact the 24 hour emergency number (The admitting hospital can help you with this) before accepting any/all treatments to ensure that you are covered. Again please note that using an alternative hospital to Near East will result in a reduced payment.

EMERGENCY NUMBER 0548 824 0724 (not required if attending Near East)

If the emergency is such that you are unable to make the call then please ensure that you get a discharge letter from the doctor detailing all treatments and medication, your admittance and discharge dates and all payments and receipts in your name (the Policy Holder) for any treatment given. This receipt and report must state exactly what symptoms you suffered, the treatment that was given and the full invoice payment made. It is helpful if you also gain a fatura (receipt, and keep the payment slip).
