Q

Why from own town living in is National Health Insurance tax lower in neighboring town?

A About National Health Insurance tax rate, we can decide by discretion of each municipality and are uneven even if we look at the Saga prefecture.

The municipalities with high medical expenses need a lot insurance tax to serve that, but place where there are few medical expenses adversely can set insurance tax rate low. In addition, we cannot provide with medical expenses if the low municipalities of income set insurance tax rate highly whereas we can set insurance tax rate low as there is much insurance yield of taxes by just that much in the municipalities with high income and are not going to get more insurance yield of taxes. Besides, there is element influencing insurance tax, but it, please note that there is unavoidable circumstances that difference comes out to standard of insurance tax as there are such circumstances mainly since there are not the municipalities of condition identical as one.

About rationalization of medical expenses and specific medical examination

Q

Wind "not to go to medical institution", and to say that we hear the word rationalization of medical expenses does not hear.
We think that we should have a right to consult medical institution…

A Adequacy of medical expenses is to prevent growth of medical expenses from becoming excessive to adhere to the universal care and does not restrain occasion receiving medical care.
In addition, we examine early consultation and periodical ken (ken) from the viewpoint of aggravation prevention and recommend consultation and are intended that we plan adequacy of growth of medical expenses through such a thing.

 

Q

Disease is thing named all sometime and does not want to become. We think name "rationalization of medical expenses plan" how it is thing.

A Name of this plan is determined by "law about medical securing of elderly person". In addition, it is intended that we can receive health care service in peace again for the future so that this plan shall be appropriate by growth of medical expenses by just promoting the prevention of lifestyle-related disease and construction of the effective and high quality medical care offer system, and burden on medical expenses of citizens of the prefecture does not become excessive.

 

Q

When consultation rate of specific medical checkup rises, you dig up "unhealthy" person, and do you not make opportunity to go to hospital for? If ill person has already hung over hospital and suffers from hospital, "medical checkup feels like being meaningless, too".

A

Purpose of specific medical examination intervenes in "it is unhealthy" for applicable person early and is that we prevent ill aggravation through what consultation of conduct and overhaul of specific health guidance encourages.
Even if it is person visiting a hospital for treatment to medical institution, inspection to cover all items of specific medical examination may not be performed and discovers disease except disease giving and is a chance to prevent.

We receive specific medical examination once a year and think that we want you to connect own medical examination result with the prevention of lifestyle-related disease and the prevention of aggravation for index of lifestyle improvement.
