Those who are employed by member business sites of Coca-Cola East Japan Health Insurance Association will become “insured persons” of the Health Insurance Association. Family members added as their family are called “dependents.”
The person himself/herself who is a member of the health insurance is called an “insured person.” Anyone who works at a business site where health insurance applies will automatically become an “insured person”, except in cases when certain employment conditions are not met, such as part-time workers.
If a short-time worker’s normal working hours in a week and normal working days in a month are more than three-quarters of those of a regular full-time employed worker, he/she is eligible to become a member of the health insurance.
In addition, even if working hours and working days are below three-quarters of those of a regular full-time employed worker, a short-time worker will be eligible to become a member of the health insurance if he/she meets all of the following five conditions below.
Qualification to be a member of the health insurance scheme is obtained on the first day of employment and terminates on the day after leaving our company or death. Additionally, if an insured person reaches the age of 75 and becomes eligible for the national medical care system for the elderly in later life , he/she will be disqualified from being insured by the health insurance even if he/she continues in office.
Membership normally terminates when an insured person leaves our company. If he/she wishes to continue being a member of the health insurance, he/she can become a member as a “voluntary continuation insured person” as long as he/she meets certain conditions.
Family members depending upon an insured person will be paid insurance benefits by the health insurance. These family members are called “dependents.” In order to be a dependent, he/she needs to meet certain conditions, and to acquire certification from the Health Insurance Association.
