You got an email or a letter saying you're covered from date X. What's next?
You can see a doctor from date X onward.
You do not have to wait for your health insurance card to see a doctor!
This is the most common question we get asked. The moment your cover is live, you can see a doctor with your TK membership. Sometimes a doctor will request an official letter from TK. Either take along the PDF from the email - or just call this number and TK will fax confirmation straight to the doctor 040 4606610400.
You will receive your health card after uploading a photo
You should get your health insurance card a few weeks after signing up. It's printed centrally via secure printing facilities, so it can take up to two weeks after uploading a photo.
