JET Programme Accident Insurance
In the case that a JET participant is injured or becomes ill during the period of coverage, the JET Accident Insurance Policy allows JET participants to claim back medical costs incurred (minus a ￥5,000 deductible and within the limits of the policy). When receiving treatment, JET participants should first make use of their Social (Health) Insurance and then claim remaining costs with the JET Accident Insurance. The JET Accident Insurance also provides coverage for death caused by accident or illness, disability, and treatment for injuries and illnesses that occur during travel abroad or temporary visits to the JET participant's home country. Medical costs incurred due to injuries or illnesses that happened before the start of the insurance policy are not covered.
