Insurance for Exchange Students (ISEPTUFS students)

National Health Insurance

Japan has the National Health Insurance program. It is compulsory for exchange students to join this program. This is advantageous because you need to pay only 30% of the medical treatment fees at a clinic or hospital when you become ill or you need to be hospitalized. You will apply for the National Health Insurance program after your arrival. The monthly charge will be about 1,000 yen. Please be aware that this charge is nonrefundable, and you have to pay the fee even if you never go to a hospital during your stay in Japan.

Personal Accident Insurance for Student Pursuing Education and Research (PAS)・Comprehensive Insurance for Student Lives Coupled with PAS for International Students
