Patient Fees

The patient fees of those belonging to the Finnish health care system are based on the Act and Decree on Customer Fees in Social Welfare and Health Care. For further information on patient fees for foreigners, please refer to the Treatment for Foreigners section.

  • The outpatient clinic fee of EUR 41.20 is charged of patients 18 years or older in age and covers all procedures performed at the clinic and doctor's appointments. If the patient is admitted to the inpatient ward during the same visit, the outpatient clinic fee will not be charged. The fee will not be charged for psychiatric outpatient care, nor from war veterans.
  • The day-surgery fee of EUR 135.10 is charged for a day-surgical procedure performed in an operating theatre requiring general anaesthesia, extensive local anaesthesia, or intravenous medication. The fee will not be charged from war veterans.

In the case of patients under 18, the daily hospital fee will be collected for seven days per calendar year, after which the inpatient ward care is free of charge.
