Special Medical Care Fees at the First or Return Visit

This system was established by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare when the medical payment system was revised in April 2016 with the aim of promoting role sharing and business cooperation among medical institutions, which means that early treatment should be handled at local clinics (regular doctors) while advanced and tertiary care is performed at hospitals.

Therefore, it was decided on April 1, 2016 that patients who visit an advanced treatment hospital like this hospital without a referral letter from another medical institution, have to pay a fixed amount of money at the first or return visit (mandatory payment of special medical care fee).

Based on this system, our hospital has collected the following special medical care fee at the first or return visit since April 1, 2016.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
