We receive a fair amount of inquiries on this topic from time to time, so I thought I would be a good idea to create a "single point of contact" for questions, discussions, news items, etc. related to Kokumin Kenko Hoken/Kokumin Nenkin.
Note: Kokumin Kenko Hoken/Kokumin Nenkin is the National Health Insurance Program you enroll in on your own initiative at your local ward office/city hall when you are NOT an employee of a company (unemployed, self-employed, etc.). Shakai Hoken (Shakai Kenko Hoken/Kousei Nenkin) is the Work Place Health Insurance System in which Japanese companies are required to enroll all employees.
