Meal service while you are hospitalized Benefits in kind
 

If you are hospitalized, in addition to the 30% copayment on medical care costs, you must also pay yourself as meal expenses (referred to as “inpatient meal standard expenses”) 460 yen/meal for up to three meals/day.

While the actual cost of meals during hospitalization is 640 yen/meal (up to three meals/day) based on standard meal expenses, the Health Insurance Society pays the amount in excess of inpatient meal standard expenses, as "Inpatient Meal Expenses".
