The medical expenses on the following cases will be covered up to the value of 5,000,000 won :
Visit the medical institutions implementing the program → enquire as to whether you qualify as a beneficiary of the program → have a medical consultation → receive the treatment
Medical Institutions will confirm the entitlement of the beneficiary and provide the treatment → the medical institution requests medical expense assessment by the Health Insurance Review & Assessment Service → the medical institution will submit the result of the assessment and claim reimbursement of the medical expenses from Busan Metropolitan City
Busan Metropolitan City will review the submitted documents → pay the expenses owing to the medical institution.
