About the discharge

The discharge day

You can confirm the hospital discharge day according to the number of days in the hospital indicated in your Hospitalization and Medical Care Plans.

The consultation after discharge

The first outpatient visit to the hospital after discharge is planned to be about two weeks after discharge, and a month after discharge for patients who come from far away. Ask a ward clerk if you want to schedule an appointment for your next visit.

Documents for your insurance company

Documents needed for your insurance company must be submitted to 1st floor reception on the day you are discharged. These documents will be returned to you at a later date.
A medical certificate in our hospital's format can be completed while you are in the hospital. Please request it and leave adequate time before the discharge date.

The estimate of hospitalization

If you want to know the approximate cost of hospitalization, ask a ward clerk the day before discharge.

If there is any change in your insurance card

Tell a ward clerk if there is any change in your health insurance card during hospitalization.

Costs of hospitalization and medical care, etc.

Our hospital is subject to the Diagnosis Procedure Combination (DPC) system. The method for calculating the costs of hospitalization and medical care has been changed from the conventional fee-for-service system to the DPC method.
As a general rule, invoices for the costs of hospitalization and medical care will be issued two times per month. However, the amount may change after the following month, depending on changes in the patient's condition or in procedures. In such a case, the doctor in charge makes a final determination at the time of release. Note that if there is any change, we will recalculate and adjust the amount when you are discharged from the hospital.
