health insurance for temporary residence

i got worldwide health insurance and it's not the travel one it cover every thing... but it end in June 2013......so can i apply for the residence with it ? or i should apply for a new one?

also how much it cost here in Malta?

Hi Designs,

you should be able to apply for residency with it if it covers you in Malta. In the end it is up to DCEA if they accept the insurance as equivalent to the state health coverage.

I personally am insured with Atlas which costs about 600 €/ year for my age group. It is cheaper for younger people. The main problem is that private health insurance does not cover pre-existing illnesses.

my insurance is allianz St. James hospital is familiar with it 
thank you Ricky, so can i give them my insurance and also i'll apply for another one so it cover all the year

The main problem is that private health insurance does not cover pre-existing illnesses.


you mean this will be problem when i apply for the id card or you mean just for me if i get sick?

Hi Designs,

if DCEA accepts your insurance you don't have to apply for a new one yet until the other one expires!

Cheers
Ricky
