Public health care

Public health care services in Finland are provided by municipalities and financed by tax revenue.

You are entitled to use the public health care when you are a resident of a municipality and entitled to the National Insurance coverage.

To register a municipality of residence (kotikunta), you need to provide evidence of your intention that you are going to remain in Finland permanently. When you are entitled to a residence in your home municipality, you have the right to use public health care services and you pay the same fees as locals.
