Medical Treatment & Medical Insurance in Turkey
Turkey’s Social Security Institution (SSI) insures all international full-time students, except for those in the country on student exchange. Students may activate their insurance on the first day of the academic year. Coverage will remain effective through the end of the academic year.
To activate coverage, students must go to the local health authority in Istanbul with
- Their residence permit
- Their passport and a photocopy of it
- Their student identification paper from BAU
Students will get an SSI number upon registration, to be used at all medical appointments.
SSI covers the cost of most necessary medical appointments, and subsidizes most of the cost of necessary prescription medication. Extent of coverage differs between hospitals. Contact the International Students Office with questions. Note that most hospitals employ English-speaking doctors.
All Exchange Students coming to BAU must have internationally valid health insurance.
