National Health Insurance System

National Health Insurance (NHI) is a system whereby participants pool together insurance premiums to prepare for sickness and injuries. This money is then used to help cover necessary medical costs.
If you are a registered resident of Minato City, you have to enroll in NHI unless you are enrolled in the insurance program of your company, receiving public assistance, or staying in Japan for diplomacy. A person registered in NHI will receive an NHI card.
A person who is aged 70 to 74 years old additionally receives a “Certificate of NHI for people aged 70 to 74 years old.” Please show both of them when you consult a doctor.

Enrollment and withdrawal from NHI

Notification within 14 days

If you enroll in or withdraw from NHI, or you have any changes to your name or address, please notify us within 14 days of the change. Please bring your “My Number Card” and personal ID. For enrollment, you need to present your passport.

Delayed enrollment

You need to pay insurance premiums for the period going back to the point at which you became eligible for NHI, not to the day that you submit the notice. You will have to bear the full cost of medical treatment that you receive during that period.

A person who enrolled in Japan’s public occupational insurance

When you enroll in Japan’s public occupational insurance, you need to submit notice that you are withdrawing from NHI. Bring your occupational insurance card and NHI card and complete the procedure.

Delayed withdrawal from NHI

If you use your NHI card after you lose your eligibility for the NHI of Minato City, you must pay back the cost of medical treatment borne by Minato City. Please complete the withdrawal procedure from NHI and return your NHI card.
