Hospitalization Medical Expenses
The hospital charges are based on a medical system called "Comprehensive Evaluation Method (DPC/PDPS)" designated by the Ministry of Health and Welfare.
DPC/PDPS (Diagnosis procedure combination/per diem payment system), unlike the "volume method" calculated for each conventional medical practice, is based on the disease and symptoms of hospitalized patients / therapeutic action. This is a new calculation method that combines the comprehensive valuation portion (hospitalization fee, examination, medication, injection, etc.) and the volume evaluation part (surgery, anesthesia, rehabilitation, guidance fee, etc.) and consisting of an amount per day for each classification (diagnostic group classification) prescribed by the Ministry of Health.
About the payment machine for inpatient medical expenses
The hospital will send an invoice for the hospitalization medical fee to the hospital room on the 10th of the following month with closing at the end of each month. Payment must be made by the 25th at the payment machine for inpatient medical expenses (for a regular invoice only) or at the Admission / Discharge Center on the 1st floor of the main building.
We ask that you use the payment machine to alleviate congestion at the window.
*The receipt will not be reissued, so please keep it in a safe place.

You can use a credit card to pay your medical bills. (A PIN number is required when using the payment machine.)
About the statement

The statement lists the names of the drugs used and the names of the examinations performed. Contact the accounting office if you do not want this statement issued, including when a family member does the accounting on your behalf.
