Our hospital is a designated medical institution for worker's compensation insurance.
We also handle traffic accidents (compulsory automobile liability insurance and optional insurance).
※In the event of a traffic accident during commuting or work duties, compulsory automobile liability insurance or optional insurance will generally be prioritized for use.
○ Worker's Accidents
If a worker has an accident or injury during work or commuting, they can receive necessary treatment through worker's compensation insurance.
Worker's compensation insurance can be subscribed to regardless of employment status, including full-time employees, part-time workers, and temporary staff.
If you visit our hospital due to a work-related injury, please inform the reception desk and bring the Necessary Documents.
At that time, there will be no out-of-pocket expenses for treatment.
Please refer to the following for the necessary documents and confirm with your employer.
◎ Necessary Documents
・Injury during work
- Initial visit to our hospital: Form No. 5
- Transfer from another hospital: Form No. 6
・Injury during commuting
- Initial visit to our hospital: Form No. 16-3
- Transfer from another hospital: Form No. 16-4
・If the above documents are not immediately available
Even if the documents are not immediately available, you can still visit our hospital.
In that case, while patients will be required to advance payment for treatment at the reception, upon completion of the necessary documents, we will refund the treatment costs previously borne by you upon presentation of a receipt.
○ Traffic Accidents
If you have been involved in a traffic accident, please seek prompt medical attention at a medical institution.
Even if you do not feel symptoms immediately after the accident, pain may appear after a few days.
Furthermore, if several weeks have passed since the accident, it may become difficult to prove the causal relationship with the accident, so we urge you to seek medical attention promptly.
If you are the victim of a traffic accident, please proceed with the procedures through the insurance company of the party at fault.
Compulsory automobile liability insurance and others may apply, allowing patients to receive medical treatment without bearing the cost.
At that time, please inform the insurance company that you will be visiting "Gotokeji Orthopedic Clinic."
Until the insurance company contacts our hospital, we kindly ask patients to temporarily advance payment for treatment expenses (payment for treatment is not required once we receive confirmation of a lump sum settlement from the insurance company).
If you wish to be refunded after advancing payment for treatment expenses, please provide us with a receipt.
・Medical Certificate (For Police Submission)
In the event of an accident, it is important to promptly seek medical attention at a medical institution such as an orthopedic clinic and obtain a medical certificate from a physician.
A medical certificate is necessary to prove personal injury accidents.
If you wish to obtain a medical certificate, please consult with our hospital's physician or reception.
