We request the cooperation of subject persons for the FY2019 dependent status verification. This verification will be carried out as described below.
1. Background of dependent status verification
Since the relationship between insured persons and dependents certified by respective health insurance societies can change over time, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare of Japan has instructed health insurance societies to verify the status of dependents annually.
2. Subject persons
Insured persons with dependents
*Not including Voluntarily and Continuously Insured Persons, those working overseas accompanied by family members, and those planning to resign or retire by the end of August 2019
*Changes from last year:
・ Last year: You were asked to submit documents for all dependents.
・ This year: Please submit documents only for those earning annual income within the range from 1.03 million yen to the base amount (1.3 million or 1.8 million yen, depending on age and other factors). However, we ask that you submit documents for all dependents who have self-employment income.
