Participation in the National Health Insurance program (NHIP) is mandatory. INGOs are required to apply for group insurance at the National Health Insurance Administration (NHIA) upon receiving approval to establish an office, civil association, or foundation. All local employees and foreign employees holding an Alien Resident Certificate (ARC) must be enrolled in the NHIP. Additionally, responsible persons of nonprofit organizations must be enrolled in the NHIP as employees.
