Your boss finds out if you use your national health insurance?
« on: February 27, 2015, 07:47:04 am »
Hi,

I've read on Dave's that your boss is informed every time you use your NHIC, in the form that he will be informed that a claim is made.

Is this true?

No, not for national insurance. Your medical details are confidential, unless you contract a communicable disease like TB. That falls under the regional health authorities and they will contact your employer.

If your hagwon boss has opted for private insurance they will probably get a statement of claims made since there are deductible and limit issues.

If you're concerned you can always go to a private clinic and pay cash.

Sadly this true.  I went to the doctor at my last school for a 'male problem' and my principal and head teacher asked me about it and asked if I was ok to work.

So probably better to pay cash at the international clinic in Itaewon and just not tell anybody.  I hear that clinic actually respects medical privacy.

Just depends.  If you have a crazy gohnoria/syphallus outbreak after a thailand trip might want to keep it on the dl.  If you have a cold it should be ok to use nhs.

I was going to say "Cool, thanks baphomet"

But that sounded weird given my Christian upbringing, lol.

I don't think they do. I have been to the doctors many times and my co-teachers generally don't have a clue when I go or why. I was in hospital and they made me bring some kind of letter from the doctor declaring why I was away from work, and that I was fit to work again. If they are able to see every doctors visit you make, why would they ask for that?

Perhaps f it is some kind of highly contagious disease that could affect your job, they might tell your employer, but I doubt they would know every single time you go to the doctor and why.

Stop paying for sex or wear a condom?

Playing the devil's advocate here, but we all pay for sex, somehow, someway. It may not be as simple as a cash for a short time transaction, but we pay. I built my wife a house, in her home village, surrounded by her family. It wasn't 100% altruistic!
