Immediately join another health insurance plan
On your retirement from the company, coverage under Sony
Health Insurance terminates both for you and for your dependents. Immediately
take the steps required to join another health insurance plan.
Independently select a health insurance system
When you first joined the company, your health insurance
procedures were processed by your workplace (company). In contrast, when
you leave the company, you are responsible for selecting a system and
undertaking all the necessary procedures on your own.
Be sure to carefully consider the various health insurance plans.
You have a variety of health insurance plans to choose from after leaving the company. Since each has its own benefits, drawbacks, and precautions, it is impossible to say that one is clearly better than the others. Ultimately, this is something you must decide yourself. Carefully consider matters such as medical treatment, health insurance services, and insurance premiums in the area in which you will live after leaving the company, then choose the plan that is best for you.
