FOR FIRST TIME VISITORS
THE MINISTRY OF HEALTH, LABOUR AND WELFARE REQUIRES FIRST TIME VISITORS TO BRING A DOCTOR’S LETTER OF REFERRAL FROM A CLINIC OR OTHER MEDICAL FACILITY WHEN SEEKING MEDICAL ATTENTION AT LARGE HOSPITALS. THOSE WITHOUT A REFERRAL MUST PAY AN ADDITIONAL FEE OF 2,620 YEN (TAX INCLUDED). THIS FEE IS NOT COVERED BY YOUR INSURANCE.
WHAT IS THIS SPECIAL FEE?
SINCE APRIL, 1996 (HEISEI 8) AN AMENDMENT WAS MADE TO THE HEALTH INSURANCE ACT REQUIRING HOSPITALS WITH 200 PLUS BEDS TO CHARGE AN EXTRA FEE UNDER THE “HASSHIN NI KANSURU HOKENGAIHEIYOURYOUYOUHISEIDOU” (ROUGHLY TRANSLATED: FEE FOR MEDICAL TREATMENT NOT COVERED BY HEALTH INSURANCE FOR FIRST-TIME VISITORS). IN COMPLIANCE WITH THIS CHANGE, SAISEIKAI HOSPITAL ADDS THIS FEE TO ANYONE WHO DOES NOT HAVE A LETTER OF REFERRAL FROM A SMALLER HOSPITAL, CLINIC OR OTHER MEDICAL FACILITY.
THE FOLLOWING ARE EXEMPT FROM THIS FEE:
●THOSE WITH A LETTER OF REFERRAL FROM ANOTHER MEDICAL INSTITUTION
●THOSE NEEDING EMERGENCY CARE (CAME BY AMBULANCE)
●THOSE RECEIVING ASSISTANCE UNDER THE LIVELIHOOD PROTECTION LAW
●THOSE RECEIVING SPECIAL PENSION/ASSISTANCE FOR CERTAIN ILLNESSES OR DISABILITIES
