Hospital rooms:病室について

There are four types of rooms, private, two, four, and six-bed rooms, and four to six-bed room is common.

Unless suffering from infectious disease, there is an extra cost for staying at a private room

Since extra cost varies based on the number of beds at hospital, there are hospitals charging a few thousand Yen, whereas others are more than ten thousand Yen. Hence, you should better ask the hospital in detail.





Hospitalization expense:入院費用ひようについて

Hospitalization expenses are calculated by the method called “comprehensive evaluation: DPC” defined by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare.

DPC applies to the “Diagnostic Group Classification Score Chart” (approximately 1,400 classifications) determined by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare according to the medical treatment contents such as surgery and treatment based on the hospitalized patient’s disease name and symptoms, and based on the amount per day. It is a method to calculate hospitalization medical expenses.

If there is no description in the “Diagnostic Group Classification Score Chart,” other calculation methods will be used. Since the calculation method is complicated, it is necessary to contact the hospital for more in detail.
