I have just returned from the tax office . All done and dusted .
My query is this , the only method of payment is through JCC
I do not use JCC or indeed any other online banking . Has anyone been offered an alternative method please ?

Is that paying tax or your GESY contribution Scottie? If GESY how is the total calculated? net or Gross on your income?

As I don't pay tax at the moment I am under the limit I did not ask but I'm going back on Wed and will ask then.
To be honest I was so taken aback at only being given the one option as to how to pay along with the info that I won't be billed and will have to keep track on the six monthly payments ! .
The whole thing could work out to being very expensive for some . Along with the fact that you are only allowed 10 visits to the doc amongst other regulations I am beginning to turn from a firm supporter to a sceptical member.
I will remember to ask on Wed .

Hi Scottie,
Didn't know you were only allowed 10 visits to a doctor, is that info on the Gesy website?

So me & husband can have 10 visits but daughter only 3. Seems ridiculous. I have been about 4 times to hospital, My husband never but daughter must have been at least 10 in 2 1/2 years. Throat infections & sports related injuries
Assume anyone can go to A&E & pay €10. doesn’t say what happens when exceed your allowance. More worrying is daughter on medication for ADHD so I usually go & see paediatrician while she is at school just for prescription As only give at most 3 months worth that will use up her allowance
Hoping a way round this or will mean getting her meds on private prescription at nearly €100 a month

If you read the whole article , it means none of these things .
The article is in the post . %Not quite what I expected"
Chronic illnesses are exempted. For others you can still see your doctor at 15euro per visit after your allocated allowance Read the whole article

So should we be paying this year, or with next years tax?

I confess, with all the access to info I have at my disposal, this GESY stuff does my head in. God knows how some of the old village people here manage to cope. Sad

Just a reminder if you are a U.K. state pensioner you are entitled to the S1 form from the DWP , once you register the S1 form in Cyprus there is no payment required to Gesy .

After 5 weeks we are still awaiting an S1 form to our address in Polemi, Paphos . Meanwhile it is my understanding that the Gesy people are accepting a valid medical card as proof of having registered with an S1 or E121 in the past..

This is correct . It was in the newspaper last week. Stated as a temporary measure this has been introduced until the backlog has been cleared. It makes sense when you think about it , one would not have got a card without it !

Does make sense. So if I send a copy of our white medical card with all our names on plus the marriage & birth certificates to Nicosia they should hopefully accept that

Why not take it to the doctor of your choice, at this rate there will be no doctors to choose from
