Method of care aid

We perform care aid based on application from social security recipient. When it is admitted that care service is necessary, we will receive offer of care service from care organization which received designation by National Assistance Act, but, as a general rule, about payment method of care service, it is said that we perform by benefit in kind. (2 of law Article 54, 2 of law Article 34)
Specifically, instead of collecting user self-pay from social security recipient, designated care engine demands grant of care ticket from Health and Welfare Center and will request care aid costs from National Health Insurance ream (association of National Health Insurance group society) based on information registered by care ticket.
