2009/10/06Renewal of National Health Insurance

You will receive a new National Health Insurance Certificate (pink color), by the simplified registration mail at the end of October. If you are not at home, you will receive a notice to tell you how to get your mail from the post office.

If you did not receive one after October, or you were too late to get your mail from the post office, please consult with the Insurance Section (Hoken Gyomu Tanto) in your ward office. For necessary procedures, please bring your current National Health Insurance Certificate, seal, and a notice from the post office (if you have one).

In addition, those who reach 75 years old by the end of October this year will receive a Latter-Stage Elderly Medical Insurance Certificate.
