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
