  1. Hi,
    I have a question. I have already pay my health insurance bill, but I have not had the health insurance card. Is that ok, or I have to take it, and I do not know where should I take it. Could you please tell me how I can do for this?


  2. Dear Nancy,
    Hope you are doing well.
    I just wanted to ask, am I late to register for tubing? or it`s the error in the system?
    I really want to participate!!! 🙂
    Thank you.
    Kind regards,
