If your address changes
The Sony Health Insurance Society requires up-to-date address information not just for insured persons, but their dependents. This critical information is used not just to prevent errors when sending documents from the Sony Health Insurance Society but also to determine whether a dependent is eligible for medical assistance (such as medical assistance for young children) from the municipality where he or she lives.
Please submit a change of address notice promptly when a dependent’s address or the residential conditions of the insured person and dependent change (e.g., if a dependent no longer lives with the insured person or vice-versa). (You do not need to attach a health insurance card to this notice.)
Additionally, correct the address on the back of your health insurance card yourself.
- Up-to-date address information is required because the Sony Health Insurance Society suspends payment of additional benefits if a family member receives medical assistance (such as medical assistance for young children) from the municipality where he or she lives. If failure to provide the correct address results in the Sony Health Insurance Society paying additional benefits even though the family member was receiving medical assistance from his or her municipality, you may be asked by the Society to refund the amount of duplicate benefits. To avoid such incidents, promptly submit a notice of any change in address.

- Be sure to submit a change of address notice. Failure to register the correct address may result in failure to receive mail from the Sony Health Insurance Society and other inconveniences.
