Long-term Care Insurance

Long-term Care Insurance Section (1st Floor, Windows 27 and 28, TEL (087)839-2326),
and at any branch or field office

The Long-term Care Insurance program was made so that society as a whole could support long-term care. People over the age of forty contribute to the fund and the program is run on insurance fees collected.

First Insured People

People over the age of 65 are "first insured people" and people with a pension income of over 180,000 yen per month will have insurance fees deducted from their pension. People with an income of less than 180,000 yen per month will have their insurance fees paid by the city.

Second Insured People

People between the ages of 40 and 64 who contribute to medical insurance are "second insured people" and insurance fees will be bundled together with medical insurance (health insurance, mutual aid association, and national health insurance) fees.

People who have been determined to be in need of support

In order to make use of long-term care insurance services, the Regional Comprehensive Support Center (inside the Takamatsu City Health Care Center, Sakura-machi 1-chome, TEL (087)839-2811) will make a plan for minimizing care needs.
