Medical system for elder senior citizens
The medical system for the elderly aged 75 and over provides "medical care that supports life" based on the characteristics of the body and the actual conditions of life, and the younger generation provides medical care for those who have contributed to society for many years. It is a system that supports each other with all the people including.
The system will be operated by the "Chiba Prefecture Medical Care for the Elderly Wide Area Union", which all municipalities in the prefecture join.
