Private health care

Private health care complements the public health care services and many Finns use that e.g. for dentists, eye specialists and special services that are not covered by the Occupational Health care. Private health care can also be contacted if you fall ill and do not have access to Occupational Health care or Public Health Centers.

Patients who use private-sector services pay the entire cost of the service to the provider, after which they can apply for reimbursement from Kela if they are eligible for the National Health Insurance in Finland.

If you have a private health insurance it is recommended to use private medical centres.
