So if you are working in Korea, many of you will be paying some tax money each month into the National Health Insurance Scheme...hopefully your hakwon, school, company, university or whatever has this done legitimately (as they are required to do by law). Here is a web-site where you can get info in English (click the English link at the top) on what is and isn't covered, and whatever else you might want to know is happening with your hard earned cash.

Thanks Jake-- it's thick, hard to navigate and Konglish-y-- but I did glean a few bits of information. . . (not really anything "useful" but I was curious about the medical/perscription reforms being hotly debated--entire hospitals full of doctors striking!!--before I left in 2000!)

By the way, love the new avatar photo. . . you clean up well!
