Yes. In fact, Americans can get a better deal. For an American to be a retiree here, he needs to prove a monthly income of $600 a month. When I RE'd, I went to the social security office and told them my retirement income was going to be $600 per month. I was going to say it was $400 but you know the old saying: "pigs get slaughtered".

Thus, I pay $46.13 per month. This covers my entire family (wife & 4 kids) and not only gives us complete medical protection but also a small contribution to the state pension fund which will entitle me to a small pension when I turn 65.


Is the health tax variable depending on income ? What would the health tax be on an income of $5000 per month ?
