Enrolling in National Health Insurance
I am a dependent of a child working in Japan. Can I use health insurance?
In the company's social insurance program, you may be able to use health insurance as a dependent relative of someone who is covered by health insurance. The person supporting the dependent will consult with the employer.
Can I enroll in National Health Insurance although I am currently unemployed?
National Health Insurance is also available to foreigners without a job. Once enrolled, you need to pay a certain amount of money each month as an insurance premium. We recommend you complete the enrollment procedures for National Health Insurance together with the resident registration procedures.
