any more info on the hospital charges increase --only i read on another forum that residents permit holders who live here should still only pay the 15lira to see a doctor and not the 100lira which has been suggested?

I am sort of under that impression too.
If anyone knows of anyone who has a residence permit and a receipt of 100tl charge they have had to pay when they had an up to date permit and can get a photocopy to me then can get this officially looked into as just need to be able to show proof of these charges being made to a residence permit holder.

* have just read the voices paper report and that appears to say to me anyhow that charges remain same for foreigners with residence permits and the 100tl is for those on 90 day visas = ie those classed as tourists*

It's nice to be vindicated Anthony. Thanks for that. Sometimes I feel as though I am talking myself when I post here as some people don't listen.

But the Voice got it wrong too. It costs 100 lira EVEN IF YOU HAVE A RESIDENCE PERMIT. And EVEN IF YOU ARE MARRIED TO A TURK.
Bloody hell, is it the same in Soke? all over Turkey? how do you know Voices are wrong?

Hi Anthony,

We've been doing some detective work. It COULD be (and this has to be tested by another hospital visit) that

1) A residence permit is not enough.

2) A Kimlik number *may* be the key to exempt you from the new charges

3) My wife got my Kimlik number last night using my residence permit number details from the website www.sgk.gov.tr

4) Turkish bureaucracy is a minefield.

5) The guard at the hospital wanted my Kimlik number (during my last abandoned visit) and was not interested in my residence permit.

6) You need a residence permit to get the Kimlik (as a foreigner).

7) The key question is: Do the new charges apply to casual foreign hospital patients or to foreign residents too ?

8) The Kimlik number puts you on an even footing with the locals when they log you into the hospital system. They are all completely lost and have to fetch someone to log in your details when you go without a Kimlik number.

9) All this may all be a load of bull and the charges may still apply.

We're gonna go see the hospital entrance guy again armed with my Kimlik number and see what he says.

You can also get the Kimlik number from the place behind the Police Station. They write the number in the front of your Residence Permit book so you just hand your book to whoever in authority needs it and they get the info from there. This has been in force for some time now hasnt it. There is an old thread about this somewhere on here.

My children also have had to have their number for the last year now to enable them to attend school = previous to last year they didnt need the number they only needed their residence permit.

We will be living in Guz so do we still go to the place behind the police station in Kusadassi ? and that place is called ?

If you would normally get your residency permit = after getting your 1st at Aydin= from Kusadasi then I would imagine so. The Kimlik office is at the back of the official building next to the Police Station. Walk down the side of the building and it leads you to it/ If you said Kimlik to the security outside they would point you down to it.

Does anyone know if the obligatory health insurance will be put into practice in 2012 and where we can get complete and correct information about what it offers ?
I have a private insurance, but had a bad financial experience at the Özel Hastanesi. Would like being able to make a comparison between private and state insurance. You never know if it offers a positive surprise.
