National Health Insurance

Everyone having a domicile in Japan is required to enroll in a public health insurance system such as the National Health Insurance system. This program is designed to reduce the burden of medical expenses when you receive a treatment in a medical institution. One of the main financial resources is National Health Insurance tax paid by policyholders. Please understand and cooperate with us through your tax payment so that the health insurance will be managed and operated soundly.

 

A payment slip for the National Health Insurance Tax will be sent to the head of households in July every year. The National Health Insurance is enrolled by household. If a member of a household is assured by the National Health Insurance, the head of household has an obligation to make the health insurance tax payment even the head of household is enrolled in another health insurance.
