Those who wish to enroll in the National Health Insurance system must complete the procedure by themselves at the municipal office.
The procedure and relevant documents are explained below.
How to enroll in the National Health Insurance
Submit the necessary documents to the relevant municipal office window that handles the National Health Insurance and Medical Service System for the Elderly.
Documents required to enroll in the National Health Insurance
It is difficult to prepare documents in advance for enrolling in the National Health Insurance.
This is because each municipality has different forms. In addition, whether or not the forms can be downloaded from the Internet also differs from office to office.
Very few municipalities provide foreign language support, and if you cannot read Japanese, it would be difficult to navigate through their website.
Therefore, you should go to the municipal office to obtain the documents and complete the procedures on the spot!
