Notes The amount of the benefits will be the lower of the amount based on treatment costs as established under domestic health insurance (using the insurance points [average prices] specified by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare of Japan) or the price paid overseas. In some cases, note that the amount of benefits you receive might be considerably less than the amount of money you actually paid. For this reason, we recommend obtaining overseas travel insurance and other such measures before traveling to ensure peace of mind.
