Insured Unit and Insured Persons

A member of the farmer association as referred to in Article 12 of the Farmer Association Act who is engaged in agricultural work and has not received the old-aged benefits of other related social insurances may join in the Farmers’ Health Insurance program as an insured person, and the basic-level farmer association to which he belongs to shall be the insured establishment.

If a farmer over 15 years old who is not a member of farmer association as referred to in the preceding paragraph, and engaged in agricultural work and has not received the old-aged benefits of other related social insurances may join in this Insurance program as an insured person, the basic-level farmer association in the household registration shall act as the insured establishment.

The voluntary enrollment in the Farmer Occupational Insurance was implemented on a trial basis starting from November 1, 2018, and its coverage was expanded starting from August 7, 2019. Individuals who are classified as category 3 insured persons under the National Health Insurance program and engage in farming but are not eligible to enroll in the Farmer Insurance may enroll in the Farmer Occupational Insurance on a voluntary basis. Eligible applicants include foreign spouses or individuals who have already received the old-age benefits of related social insurance programs. The applicants, including foreign spouses, must visit the local-level farmer association at the place of their household registration to apply for the enrollment in the Farmer Occupational Insurance.
