Health insurance

In Japan, people who stay in Japan for three monthes or more are required to join either the National Health Insurance Program or the Workers' Health Insurance Program.
The Workers' Health Insurance Program is a plan whereby employees are insured through their employers.
Foreign residents who plan on staying in Japan for three months or longer are also required to join the National Health Insurance Program. When you join the program, you will receive a National Health Insurance Certificate and must pay a premium.
When you submit your National Health Insurance Certificate to a medical facility for treatment, you only need to pay 30% of the medical costs (those applicable). When an insured person gives birth or dies or when high nursing care costs are incurred, specified amounts of benefits are provided. 
For more information, contact the Health Insurance and Pension Division of your city.

Greeting

The good thing of the eye clinic is that the patients, who have a vision problem are able to see things clearly and express directly how great ''I CAN SEE THINGS''is. The eye clinic is the place where both the patients and the staff members are pleased and share such feeling together.
The moment I feel the most delightful is when I can share the pleasure with the patients and the staff members. And this is what I live for. I'm trying to work on each work with the precious experience I've ever had.
Thank you very much.
