Translate Korean medical documents for medical services received in Korea
The health care system in Korea is world class and most Koreans have affordable access to national health insurance. However, visitors to Korea must pay for medical services in Korea out of pocket. This means costs can rise quickly and a good Korean medical translator ensure that costs on medical services in Korea are correctly and clearly communicated on international insurance claims.
Visitors to Korea need international health insurance before arriving in Korea
If you are visiting Korea, you should purchase international health insurance before leaving home. This way, even if you need health care in Korea, you can still claim reimbursement later.
Most international health insurance policies handle claims on an after-the-fact basis using documentary evidence of services received. However, Korean medical service providers issue receipts, health care service statements, medical records, and other medical documentation in Korean.
For this reason, to get reimbursed for medical expenses incurred in Korea, you may need to have a professional Korean technical translator translate your Korean medical documents in the process of filing a claim.
