You may have difficulties and find that you are wasting a lot of time at a hospital in Korea due to language barriers. Visiting the hospital with a Korean friend will facilitate your experience. If you cannot find a Korean to go with you, ask which hospital offers interpretation. Bring cash with you just in case you cannot use your credit card (Some hospitals will take specific credit cards only). The Healthcare Insurance Card is not a prepaid card.
