National Health Insurance

All the international students including their family members living in Japan for over three months are required to have National Health Insurance (NHI): the NHI policy holder shall pay 30% of the medical cost incurred, and the rest (70%) shall be covered by the insurance. Those whose income is lower than a certain income line are eligible for partial waiver of the premium. Please visit the National Health Insurance Section of your local municipal office for the enrollment and detailed information.

National Pension

If you are over 20 years old, you must join the National Pension Fund, regardless of your intended period of stay in Japan. Please visit the National Pension Section of your local municipal office for joining this program.
If your income is considered to be less than a pre-determined income level, your insurance fee may be waived.
If a member of the National Pension Fund becomes disabled or deceased, the member could collect the National Pension if their necessary requirements are satisfied.

When a student is physically injured in an accident during classes, break time, research, experiment or extracurricular activities and see a doctor as directed by the university, part or all of the cost incurred on the first visit (except hospitalization expenses) will be covered by the insurance.
