The Finnish Healthcare system is primarily funded by public tax revenue, apart from the patient fees defined in the Act and Decree on Social and Health Care Client Fees (734/1992, Finlex, In Finnish). See the client fees of the Wellfare District of Forssa. You need a municipality of residence in Finland to be eligible to use public health services. Emergency services are always available to everyone.
Those living in EU/EEA countries must prove their entitlement to immediate medical care. This can be proved by means of the European health insurance card or the E-form (with E111 being the most usual). However, with those living in the United Kingdom and in the Nordic countries, it is sufficient to present a passport or identity card. Those seeking non-immediate care must present the E112 form, or otherwise they are charged the actual costs.
Finland has an agreement with Québec, Canada, with the agreement compensating medical care for those working in Finland on an assignment, for students, and their family members during their temporary stay in Finland. The agreement signed between Finland and Australiacompensates immediate medical care to those living in Finland on a temporary basis, but this does not apply to students. The customer fees for patients coming from these countries are the same as for those living in Finland permanently. The right is obtained by presenting a passport or identity card.
Persons coming from countries other than EU countries or countries with which Finland has signed an agreement must pay the actual costs for both immediate and non-immediate care.
Those coming from other countries and seeking non-immediate care must agree with the chief physician of the speciality in question on access to care and on the care arrangements. The costs of the care must be paid prior to access to care.
Foreigners, who have a municipality of residence in Finland, are charged the same fees as residents living in Finland permanently.
