In response to the worsening management situation of medical institutions due to the effects of the new coronavirus, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare has decided to increase the medical fees paid to medical institutions that accept people with infectious diseases with mildenia.
In response to the spread of the new coronavirus, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare has specially raised medical fees paid to medical institutions that accept people with severe or mild infections in order to improve the treatment of medical professionals.

Although the proportion of infected people with severe disease is decreasing, moderate patients account for about 30% of the total, and the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare announced a proposal to raise medical fees additionally to the China Medical Association-Central Social Insurance Medical Council on April 14 to support medical institutions with deteriorating business conditions.

Specifically, among patients with mildele, people who need oxygen administration, in order to prevent it from becoming severe, because the number of medical treatment is increasing, we have decided to add five times the normal medical treatment fee.

In addition, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare has decided to use the reserve costs for this fiscal year to provide support to medical institutions, such as securing beds, in preparation for accepting patients with the new coronavirus.
