Difference between the Two：
Special Review – The National Health Insurance Administration will require professional review for the former, but not the latter since it is directly reviewed and approved by the National Health Insurance Administration
Effective Date – The former is the health insurance acceptance date. The latter is the date the physician notified the National Health Insurance Administration.
Validity Period – The former is 1 year, 3 years, 5 years, or permanent according to the major illness and injury categories. The latter is a permanent major illness and injury status.
Insurance Co-payment Exemption (Only the co-payment related to the major illness and injury is exempted, for example: if a person holding a certificate of major illness and injury undergoes surgery due to a car accident, the co-payment for the hospital surgery treatment is not exempt)
