National Health Insurance Medical Cost Notifications to be Sent

As a part of National Health Insurance, the medical cost notification which documents overall cost of medical care received at medical institutions, can be used in the medical expenses deduction of final tax returns. From last year the issuing period was adjusted. Medical costs incurred from January to October will be sent in January and November to December medical costs are to be sent in March. The notification cannot be reissued. Please make sure to store it in a safe place if you will be using the notification in your final income tax return.
