You need to have a municipality of residence in Finland to have access to public health care services. If you are a resident of a Finnish municipality, you have the same access to public healthcare and will be charged the same fees as other local residents, and your home country or nationality do not matter.

If you are not a resident of a Finnish municipality, various factors, such as your home country, your residence or temporary/permanent stay in Finland and your possible assignments to Finland may affect your eligibility or the fees collected from you.

If treatment of the illness or continued examinations requires it, the doctor at the health care centre, occupational health care centre or the private doctor can draft a referral for hospital care or hospital examinations. Thus patients generally come to the Hospital District’s hospitals with a referral from a doctor. In case of acute, severe cases one can come to the on-duty emergency wards and the hospitals’ wards for first aid even without a referral.

Specialized medical treatment fees depend on the unit. The fees are either outpatient clinic fees, bed day fees or appointment fees. A payment corresponding with the cost of producing the service is collected from other than Finnish permanent residents including persons younger than 18 years of age, unless an international contract to which Finland is bound states otherwise.

Residents of EU/EEA countries present the European Health Insurance Card. It is sufficient for residents of the Nordic countries to present a passport or identification card. Persons from other countries than those of the EU or which are parties in aforementioned contracts pay fees corresponding with the real costs both for immediate and non-immediate care.
