Japanese Healthcare Delivery System
Japanese healthcare system is characterized by the two major points. The medical fee schedule sets the value for all procedures, drugs, etc, and it is uniformly applied to all reimbursement policies in all hospitals and clinics. The second point is that most of the healthcare providers are private hospitals and clinics. Medical Care Act defines to ensure the medical care delivery system to the public and in 1985, the Government revised this law that the prefecture must provide a “medical care plan” for ensuring the quantitative medical care within the designated “secondary medical region” and can limit the numbers of hospital beds. It is often said that there are abundant bed numbers and from the point of national economy, it is unbearable in the coming aged society. Hence, the MHEW is reinforcing to build up the community based integrated care system, which will promote a shift from a hospitalization to a home health care.

Japan's fee schedule
The fee schedule sets nationally uniform service fees, the conditions of billing each item and drug prices. All public health insurance plans pay the same fee for the same service received by their enrollees to all health care providers. By revising the fee schedule every two years, costs have been contained and policy goals have been achieved.
