Step 2 Patients prepare letters of agreement(application for the attending system, application for private room, certificate of joint liability on guarantee and agreement on payment of medical expenses)

Fill in the hospitalized patient’s card located at the Registration Desk and submit it with the letter of decision of hospitalization when going through hospitalization procedure or making reservations.

Step 3 Patients go through hospitalization procedures and make reservations

The private room may be given to patients due to unavoidable circumstances like lack of wards. If patients have failed to go through hospitalization procedure on the date of hospitalization for a certain reason or due to unavoidable circumstances like lack of wards, submit the prepared hospitalized patient’s card to the desk of hospitalization affairs, have the hospitalization reservation ticket and visit the hospital on the date of hospitalization after making a confirmation via phone.

Step 3 Payment of medical expenses

Please bring the medical bill to the Admission Registration Desk (No. 15-19) to make a payment. We can make a reservation for the follow-up appointment at the same time. Reservations for medical services for outpatients are made after payment of medical expenses.

Step 4 Discharge

Submit the letter of confirmation on discharge procedure to nurses of each department after paying the medical expenses. Return home after understanding the medication and notices.

Step 5 Reservation of Medical Services for Outpatients

If necessary, doctors enter the date of appointment. Pay the reservation fees when paying the medical expenses for discharged patients, and the reservation ticket is issued. (If patients have two or more reservations, make request for reservation tickets at the desk for outpatients of the Registration.)

Progress Payment

If progress bills are issued, pay the medical expenses at the Registration Office on the 2nd floor within two days from the date of issuance.

As interim bills reflect the expenses that have been entered, the amount of payments may be different from the actual expenses at point of discharge.
