Does it cost money to consult the center if I am injured or feeling sick?
All services at the Health Administration Center are free of charge. This includes counseling by a physician or clinical psychologist, including prescriptions, hospital referrals, and first aid. You can also rest in a bed at the center if you are feeling sick.
Can I visit the Health Administration Center for follow-up examination or treatment?
Since the Health Administration Center is designed as a free support clinic, it is only equipped to provide first aid. If you require examination or chronic treatment, the center will refer you to appropriate medical institutions.
Do I need to bring my national health insurance card?
The Health Administration Center does not provide treatment covered by the national health insurance, therefore, you do not need your health insurance card. However, you will need it for hospital services to which the center may refer you.
Will the Health Administration Center write me a referral to Gifu University Hospital?
If the results of your health checkup reveal that you need to be examined or treated at Gifu University Hospital, the Health Administration Center will write you a referral. Any services you receive at the University Hospital will be treated as a greturn visit.h Therefore, you will not be billed for the initial visit fee. However, if you receive services from Gifu University Hospital for reasons unrelated to the Gifu University health checkup, you will be billed the initial visit fee and an additional ¥4,200 without a referral cost even if you bring a referral letter from the Health Administration Center.
