  2. In cases of multiple children beyond twins are born, the benefit is paid for each child.
  3. When the child is delivered at a medical facility that is a member of the obstetrical care compensation system, 16,000 yen, the amount equivalent of the premium for the obstetrical care compensation system, will be added to the childbirth benefit (the amount equivalent to the actual premium will be paid if it is less than 16,000 yen).

If you do not use the direct payment system or the proxy receipt system, please submit the claim form for childbirth/family childbirth costs together with the physician’s verification of childbirth (or attach the physician’s own form) and other required forms.
