The medical fee is calculated by adding 'points' of provided medical services and patients make co-payment according to their enrolled insurance program.
Patients without Japanese health insurance will be charged calculating ¥30 per 1 point in the Hospital from 1st November 2014. Regarding disposable medical equipment, medication, etc., the medical treatment fees will be calculated at a rate of 10 yen per point (Not including consumption tax)
