Medical Subsidies for Single-Parent Families

A Maru-Oya Medical Certificate is issued upon application to a single parent raising a child until the first March 31 after the child’s 18th birthday (under 20 years of age for those with a designated level of disability). The applicant and child must be enrolled in the required forms of Japanese health insurance and fall below a designated income level.
If you submit your health insurance card along with this medical certificate when receiving treatment at a medical institution, part or all of the personally borne expense will be subsidized.
