As premium is important resources covering expense necessary for The Long-term Care Insurance service, it is important to have you pay premium to maintain nursing-care insurance system.
Therefore the following measures may be taken based on laws and ordinances to plan fairness with person paying premium when we have been behind with premium for a long time when we use care service.

When do not pay 1 premium more than one year from deadline of the delivery; ...

  • When we use care service when special circumstances such as cases damaged by disaster do not pay premium to cry more than one year from deadline of the delivery, we will pay in full place that usually pays its own 10%, 20% of expense or 30% once. "Change (we get rid of repayment) of Payment method" means this.
  • For insurance payment is refunded later when we apply to ward office for expense that we paid once.

When there is premium that we were not able to pay by statute of limitations, depending on the period, in the of 10% or 20%, in the of 30%, it is to 40% self-pay ratio to 30% self-pay ratio for a certain period of time.
