Our clinic operates the same as other hospitals and clinics in Japan. We
accept Japanese medical insurance (Shakai hoken / Kokumin Kenko Hoken),
which typically covers 70% of the cost. You are required to cover
the remaining 30% of the total cost if you have the insurance. If you do
not have the Japanese medial insurance, you are required to pay 100% of
the total cost.
We also provide services for those who use the welfare system. Please consult your local welfare office and get a voucher before your visit.
When you prefer to arrange a series of additional professional counseling in English, we can arrange one, but the cost is not covered by Japanese insurance. It should be based on the direct contract between you and your counselor.
At the end of your visit, you will get a prescription. You can purchase the prescribed medicine at any dispensing pharmacies in your neighborhood or at the ones we recommend. The Japanese insurance also covers prescribed medication and your expense will be 30% of the total cost with the insurance.
Take the East exit of Awaji station. One minute walk, you can find a building "E's Mediterrace II." Yumi Mental Health Clinic is on the 5th floor.
