■At the Ninomiya Moue Pharmacy, we are committed to creating an environment where foreigners can feel comfortable receiving medications.■
Hello, this is the Ninomiya Moue Pharmacy, a consulting and dispensing pharmacy in Ninomiya, Tsukuba City. As Tsukuba City is one of the most populated areas in the prefecture with many people from abroad, we believe that it is necessary to provide peace of mind to the local community and so we built a pharmacy where people can consult about their health.
Although we are still in the prototype stage, we welcome feedback and hope that you will join us in building a pharmacy that will enable foreigners to feel better about receiving and taking their medications.
We provide insurance-compliant dispensing in accordance with the National Health Insurance of Japan and accept prescriptions from both hospitals and clinics. Please note that it may take some time for us to dispense your prescriptions depending on our employment situation.
What is insurance-compliant dispensing?
A prescription is issued after you have been examined by a doctor. Then, when you present your insurance card at the pharmacy, your insurance will partially cover the cost of the medications. For the employed and their dependent family members, the company will issue the insurance card while, for other situations, a public organization will be the contact point.
Prescriptions issued by hospitals and clinics can basically be dispensed at the pharmacy of your choice and the pharmacy will dispense the medication based on the prescription.
In Japan, the use of generic drugs is being promoted. Since each pharmacy may use different names and manufacturers of drugs, pharmacists have different criteria for selecting drugs. It is advisable to get your medication dispensed by a pharmacist you trust.
What is the public expenditure system?
Public expenditure is issued to those who meet certain conditions, such as those with certain diseases, the elderly, and children. It is a system whereby the cost at the pharmacy counter is reduced or exempted. If you inquire at the city hall or with other relevant organizations, they may be able to confirm if you are eligible for this system.
Our pharmacy also deals in Chinese herbal medicine and health foods.
We select the best herbal medicine for you based on your constitution. In order to do this, we may ask you some unusual questions and we would appreciate it if you would consider these questions as part of the health communication process.
Quality is crucial for supplements and health foods as carefully manufactured and quality controlled products will give not only the nutrients you are lacking in your life, but also an improved response. We also offer trial and smaller portions for testing so please feel free to inquire!
In Japan, medication prices under the National Insurance of Japan are fixed and your bill will be calculated by these rules.
