Healthcare in Taipei

The system of healthcare in Taipei is well-regarded, both in the public and private sectors. Medical facilities are modern and well equipped, and most doctors speak English, though their proficiency differs. 

Pharmacies are widely available across Taipei, with many doctors having pharmacies attached to their rooms.

As part of government efforts to improve national infrastructure and offer civic services, the Taiwanese Universal Health Insurance (NHI) programme was created and made available to residents in 1995. Expats living in Taiwan for more than four months or who hold an Alien Resident Card (ARC) are required to join the NHI.
