Keio Student Health Care Mutual Aid Association (Gakuseikenpo)

The Keio Student Health Care Mutual Aid Association (hereafter "Gakuseikenpo") is a cooperative based on a spirit of mutual aid among students. It was established in 1959 with the aim of supporting student life from a health perspective. Full-time undergraduate and graduate degree students enrolled at Keio University become members of the Gakuseikenpo when they enter the university.



Main activities of the Gakuseikenpo

Medical care benefits:
A scheme where a portion of the co-payment of a student's medical expences will be reimbursed after receiving medical treatment covered by health insurance at a health and medical care facility.
Partial changes to the system has already come into effect starting with treatments received since April 1, 2018.


Prevention benefits:
In addition to operating the Training Room on Hiyoshi Campus and offering subsidized accomodation rates at keiyaku ryokan (inns with which the Gakuseikenpo has an agreement), these benefits include activities to promote good health and prevent illness among students such as the various events planned by the Students Health Care Mutual Aid Committee, which is a welfare organization composed of student members.

Impotant notes: For medical treatments received between January and March 2018

For medical treatments received from April 1, 2018, applications will no longer be categorized into general hospitals, Keio University Hospital, and pharmacies. Regardless of where you receive treatment, the application procedures will be the same. Please note that the application procedures using the "Certificate of Medical Expense Receipt" and the automatic reimbursement system for treatments received at Keio University Hospital (including at the Shinanomachi Campus Health Center), which has been in place up to now, will be abolished.


From April 1, 2018, you will not be able to apply online for medical care benefits for treatments received between January and March 2018. Please use the existing application procedure using the "Certificate of Medical Expense Receipt" form and submit the application by the end of March 2018. If you submit an application using the "Certificate of Medical Expense Receipt" for reimbursements for treatments received between January and March 2018 on April 1, 2018 or later, you will receive the payment in or after August 2018.



Important notes: Changes to the Medical Care Benefit System

The operation of the Student Health Care Mutual Aid Association (hereafter "Gakuseikenpo") is supported by the annual fee paid by its members (full-time undergraduate and graduate students). However, in recent years, the cost for medical benefits, which accounts for 80% or more of total expenditure, has been rising each year. If this situation continues, not only the medical care benefit system but the association itself will no longer be able to sustain itself within the next few years. For this reason, it is imperative to revise the medical care benefit system in order to reduce expenditure. At the Gakuseikenpo board of directors meeting, it was decided that partial changes to the system will be made and will come into effect starting with treatments received in April 2018. Revisions
