In addition, U.S. citizens and residents who are independent outside the United States are often subject to double social security taxation, as they are covered by the U.S. program, even if they do not have a U.S. business. Publicly funded health care in Taiwan is based on the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHI). This is a compulsory social security that must be paid for by all residents of the country.

If a person is sick or injured, the NHI system bears a significant portion of the cost of medical care and medication; it does not offer comprehensive coverage. Health care is strangled when a person`s alienation card (CRA) expires; An application to withdraw from the scheme should be made at this stage.
