National Health Insurance

Japanese(日本語(にほんご))

All registered foreigners who stay in Japan for more than 3 months are required to be covered by National Health Insurance (Except those who have public medical insurance (including his or her family), or those over 75 years of age). (from July,2012)

If you carry national health insurance and are paying a premium every month, you only need to pay a part of the hospital fee when you visit.

Hospital Charges

When you go to the hospital, take your insurance certificate with you and show it at the reception desk.
You only need to pay 30% of your hospital charges.  (If your treatment is not covered by your medical insurance, you will need to pay for all of your hospital fees.)

Expensive Medical Treatment

If you recieve expensive medical treatment and your monthly hospital charges exceed a certain amount, you will receive the difference back. If you are entitled to any refund, you will receive notification from the City Office and apply for the refund.

Childbirth

When you give a birth to a baby at a hospital, you can apply for “SHUSSAN IKUJI ICHIJI KIN” (It is a system in which you receive 420,000 yen (390,000 yen) from National Health Insurance.) Some hospitals don’t have this system so please ask directly to the hospital.

If the expense of the delivery is more than 420,000 yen, you will need to pay the rest of money to the hospital. 

If the expense of the delivery is less than 420,000 yen, you will receive the rest of the money from National Health Insurance.

If you give a birth to a baby in another country or give birth before 22 weeks of pregnancy, you will receive 390,000 yen from National Health Insurance. (Applying to National Health Insurance is essential.) 

Death

In the event that a national health insurance holder dies, a funeral services payment of 30,000 yen will be paid.
