Release of Health Insurance (MI-01) to Support Initiatives to Help Prevent Lifestyle Diseases From Becoming More Serious
As the seventh product in the Insurhealth® line, on June 2, 2020, the Company released Health Insurance (MI-01) (whole life type; nickname for the Health Support Medical Insurance Kenko no Omamori) as a new health insurance product.
Traditional health insurance has mainly served to help people with medical bills after they are hospitalized or have surgery.
In addition to this traditional benefit, the new health insurance product Health Support Medical Insurance Kenko no Omamori provides health services for customers to prevent diseases from becoming more serious, by guiding them to lifestyle disease support services (providing them with the necessary services for their known conditions) when customers file a claim for health recovery assistance benefits.

By recommending continuous management with the hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) values in the app, the service is designed to transition patients to the same health insurance used by healthy individuals once their health reaches certain conditions, thereby helping to prevent their diabetes from worsening.
