Procedure when a student or foreign patient is transferred for hospital treatment
The physician will transfer a patient to hospital in cases where more advanced treatment is needed or when the patient requires medication not available at the Health Service Center.  The details are as follows:

Patients are responsible for the payment themselves.
  • In cases where there is a health insurance policy one can still obtain a doctor’s certificate, attach it to the receipt and submit it to the company to claim compensation.
