Medical insurance (医療保険)

In Japan, a medical insurance system is available to lessen the burden on medical cost. Foreigners who will be staying in Japan for a period of more than 3 months have to subscribe to the “National Health Insurance”. Please register for the National Health Insurance at municipal offices in your nearest city/ward/town/village and pay the insurance premiums.
The insurance premium is paid monthly once registration is completed. The premium varies according to local councils and one’s income. However, in most cases, the premium is about JPY 20,000 per year.
Once registered with the National Health Insurance, you will only need to pay 30% of the total medical bill. When receiving treatment for injuries or illnesses, you must present your insurance card to be eligible for the discounted payment. Take note that any medical costs for treatments not covered by the insurance scheme must be paid in full at your own expense.
