The National Health Insurance system is a system of mutual assistance, where the insured all pitch in by paying insurance premiums, so that they can receive help for any medical expenses that arise through illness or accidents.

Each person who subscribes to the National Health Insurance is issued with a National Health Insurance Card.

Minato City sent out new health insurance cards for the insured to heads of households at the end of August. Please use the new cards from this month. You should cut up expired health insurance cards with scissors or dispose of them in shredders. Alternatively, you can return them to your local Regional City Office.

The subsection in charge at Minato City Hall is the Eligibility and Premium Subsection of the National Health Insurance and Pension Section.
