Persons living in other areas in Finland outside Helsinki

Persons living in other areas in Finland outside Helsinki pay for their treatment the same fees as the residents of Helsinki (except an appointment with a doctor at health station, which is free of charge for the residents of Helsinki). The home municipality of the visitor receiving treatment is charged for the costs of the treatment.

Citizens of the EU and EEA countries, Australia and Switzerland

If you are a citizen of the European Union or a country belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA), the fee for an appointment with a doctor at Helsinki City health station is 14.70€, the emergency care fee is 29.30€ and the outpatient clinic fee is 29.30€ per visit. An appointment with a public health nurse is free of charge. The treatment costs do not cover transport home. Also citizens of Australia and Switzerland are entitled to municipal health care with the same rights as citizens of the European Union or a country belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA).

The citizenship of the EU or an EEA country is proved by an European Health Insurance Card. Persons residing in the Nordic countries or Great Britain can prove their right to treatment also with a passport or identification card. If a person cannot prove that he/she is entitled to the treatment, he/she will be charged according to the real costs of the treatment.

Citizens of other countries

Citizens of other than the listed above countries are provided only urgent medical care at the city health stations and they are charged according to the real costs of the treatment. The emergency health care also is charged according to the real costs.
