Instructions for International Patients
Who are international patients exactly?
Patients who are not covered by Japan’s national medical insurance resulting from residing out of Japan or other reasons.
Medical fee is calculated 30 yen for one medical point, which is 10 yen for the Japan’s medical-insured patients. (Medical fee is calculated by medical points in Japanese medical system.) It is also taxable.
National Cancer Center Hospital has signed a business cooperation contract with Emergency Assistance Japan, Co., Ltd. (EAJ). To process those patients’ visit, EAJ will get in touch with our Hospital on behalf of the patients. Contact EAJ for an appointment with National Cancer Center Hospital, not contact us directly.
National Cancer Center Hospital does not serve language assistance. Patients who have a Japan’s national medical insurance, but don’t understand the language, please bring a translator with you. Patients who failed to bring one, National Cancer Center Hospital may introduce other hospitals, in terms of safety, where are fully staffed for foreign languages.
To serve smooth and safe clinical work, your understanding is highly appreciated.
