As far as I know the medical test doesn't include hepatitis. They check your lungs via x-ray (for signs of TB) and they do a blood test for HIV, and sometimes a few other tests. They'll also probably ask for proof of any vaccinations you've had in the past. It would be a good idea to speak to someone at your local Taiwanese embassy to find out for sure whether they test for hepatitis, though, as I've heard that sometimes an STD test is run - but I get the feeling this info is out of date, so I'm not sure if it's true.
