Will I need to travel to see a specialist?

Answer this Question

When we asked members in Japan if they typically need to travel to see specialists, they replied...

"Since Tokyo is such a big city, I would say that people rarely have to leave Tokyo for speciality service or care. You may be moved within Tokyo, but I would be surprised is you were moved out of Tokyo," remarked another expat in Tokyo, Japan.

"Expats likely go anywhere that has English speakers. Healthcare is good here. People only have to pay 30% of reasonable costs for anything covered. Unfortunately, the public healthcare here does not cover anything preventative. Since I still have active health insurance in America, I have visited there to get a child prevention measure done - completely covered," said a member in Tokyo, Japan.
