Are you getting benefits from your insurance premium?

 

Hello?

 

My name is Moo Kyung Kim. For the past 15 years, I have worked as a lecturer and manager at a language school. What I want to say is that while working at a language school, native teachers don't know much about Korea's medical system, so they miss out on medical services that they deserve.  

In 2015, an American teacher I worked with had a colonoscopy, and I had found him a hospital and played an interpreter role between him and doctors. The foreign teacher told me that his medical problem ran in the family and he could receive good medical care at a reasonable price in Korea. Before that, I didn't know anything about Korean medical care.

I wonder if any of you have a health check. I have never seen a native English teacher who have health check-ups every two years. I have worked in Joil, Pagoda, Park Jung, Avalon, and JLS etc. where no teachers seemed to wonder about medical checkup.  Of course, I am sure that they had difficulty communicating and fear.

From now on, I will be your guardian and be with you during your health checkup. Not only interpretation but also the translation of the result will be served. When I took a course for international medical coordinator, I could have friends who speak Vietnamese, Russian, Chinese, Mongolian and Japanese. This year, people with even birth year should have a health checkup. There are many differences in services depending on which hospital you use for the same medical examination. Let me introduce you to the best hospital. In particular, this type of medical examinations that come to your big sized company or factory and simplify the process is not recommended. You are supposed to be diagnosed with your medical insurance premiums paid by you. The same cost, why not better hospitals.
