Health Care

Japan has the highest life expectancy in the world. The quality of the medical services play a major role when understanding the reasons behind the long and healthy life of people. The health care system in Japan provides healthcare services, including screening examinations, prenatal care and infectious disease control, with the patient accepting responsibility for 30% of these costs while the government pays the remaining 70%. Payment for personal medical services is offered through a universal health care insurance system that provides relative equality of access for all, including foreign residents.
