Although socially vulnerable individuals are covered by GSS as a family with a monthly premium of 150.12 lira, the state pays a premium for low income. Although children and adolescents are covered unconditionally, opportunities are also offered for those who owe a premium. What is the meaning of GSS in numbers starting with 60/1 in e-government? Here are the details
Turkey has set an example to the world through its strong healthcare system and social security practices.
With the General Health Insurance (GSS) system, which was introduced in 2012 and has become more accessible with the changes made in 2017, all citizens can access both health and medicine services.
Today, citizens who say their TR ID number in all hospitals and pharmacies can both get their medicine checked. Similarly, health care including social security can be obtained by paying contribution fee in private hospitals. In fact, retirees pay less for it, while pharmacies do not pay for medicine. Medicine money is then deducted from the pension. Therefore, working with the GSS system or not, everyone is under the umbrella of health. Everyone from 7 to 70 is sure.
While the premium for employees or retirees is paid automatically, the state has a premium payment system for those who do not work. Let’s take a closer look at the services provided by GSS:
3 Family Health: Those who do not have social security, i.e. those who do not work, or those who are not dependent, are included in the family GSS coverage with a monthly premium of 150.12 lira. The GSS premium is 3 percent of the current total minimum wage. Since the total minimum wage this year is 5004 TL, the monthly premium is also 150.12 TL. If these citizens do not have the power to pay this premium, they are not paid this time and the state pays the premium. For this, it is necessary to have income test for the post of district governor.
3 Poverty bonus From state: Those who apply for the income test and whose household per capita income is below 1,668 TL are covered by the premium state.
At the end of the income test, the income entered into the household is divided by the number of living people and the requirements are determined. It should be less than one-third of the total minimum wage. When examining income, the monthly income of the family is determined by considering the income, expenses, movable and immovable property and the rights of spouses, unmarried children and parents living in the same residence with general health. Divided by the insured holder, the number of family members living in the household, and the per capita household. The monthly amount of income is determined.
3 Children include: All youth and children under the age of 18 are also covered by GSS. No premium or income test is required for this age.
3 2 year discount for youth: The state pays youth health premiums for 2 years after graduation. There is also an age limit here. The age limit for high school graduates is 20 and for university graduates is 25.
GSS premium is not paid after graduation till this age.
3 Loan benefits from: Those who have Bag-Kur and GSS premium loans can also benefit from free health services provided by the Ministry of Health and its affiliated and university hospitals till the end of the year.
3 All hospital doors Open: Citizens are served by more than 2,400 contracted healthcare providers.
3 There are more than 9,000 drugs on the list: 9 thousand 94 drugs in the list of revenge. According to the latest data, the number of contracted pharmacies has exceeded 26,000.
What do the numbers mean?
Citizens entering the e-government system come in numbers ranging from 60 in documents related to GSS. These numbers determine the law number and the status of your employment. Who will be covered by General Health Insurance is determined by Article 60 of Act No. 5510. So all numbers start with 60. Since the differences in the style of work are mentioned here in the sub-section, it is also expressed with some letters after the number 60.
In sub-paragraph (c) of the first paragraph of Article 60, those who will benefit from healthcare without paying GSS premium are counted, and the most prominent of these are those whose family income is less than one-third of the total monthly wage per person.
Therefore, GSS premium paid by the state “60 / c-1” As shown.
In sub-paragraph (g) of the first paragraph of Article 60, those who do not have social security, i.e. those who do not work and those who are not dependent, are counted. In other words, those who are not insured due to their parents or spouse, do not work in the workplace, are not retired, they are included in this coverage and pay GSS premium. In these individuals it is expressed as 60 / g-1.
