  • Date: 2018-07-06
  • Issued by: Taichung City Government

To help spouses from the mainland and other countries have a correct concept of reproductive health care and to improve care for these foreign spouses, subsidy will be provided to foreign spouses who have not yet participated in the National Health Insurance Program for prenatal care. For foreign spouses who have not yet domiciled in the city, they can still get subsidy for birth control (including vasectomy or intrauterine device) According to the Public Health Bureau of Taichung City, foreign spouses can get NT$600 for each prenatal care for 5 times. Foreign spouses who voluntarily use intrauterine device can get NT$1000 and those who voluntarily undergo tubectomy will be awarded NT$10,000. Male foreign spouse who voluntarily undergo vasectomy will also get NT$2,500. Anyone qualified for the subsidy can contact the local health office for details. With this policy, the government hopes to ensure the health of the mother and the child through prenatal care. The birth control subsidy, on the other hand, intends to encourage foreign spouses to delay their decision to have children until they have adapted themselves to the new life in Taiwan.
