National Health Insurance System
All foreigners who stay in Japan for one year or longer must join the National Health Insurance System. When receiving medical treatment under this system, you are required to pay only 30% of incurred medical costs. For enrollment you need to visit the National Health Insurance Section of municipal office in the region where you live. We recommend you go through the procedures when applying for alien registration or the registry changes.
This society is a mutual aid organization established for Rissho University students to subsidize their medical costs. For more information, please refer to Student's Handbook (Tachibana-dayori).
