Student healthcare services starting 1 January 2021

Starting 1 January 2021, the Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS) will provide student healthcare services for all higher education students. A healthcare fee for higher education students is paid to Kela. 

Students who are entitled to use the services of FSHS are students who have registered as attending and who are completing

  • a bachelor's or master's level degree earned in a university of applied sciences
  • a bachelor's or master's level university degree.

Exchange students, students in open university and students in tailor-made, customer-specific training programmes are not entitled to use the services of FSHS.

Information on student healthcare services is available on the website of the Finnish Student Health Service (YTHS).

Starting in 2021, students who are entitled to use the services of FSHS will pay a healthcare fee to Kela. No bill will be sent on the healthcare fee, and thus the student has to pay the fee on his or her own initiative. In 2021, the student healthcare fee in higher education will be EUR 35.80 per term. The fee is paid to Kela once per term, i.e. twice a year. You are expected to pay the fee for the spring term unprompted, by 31 January at the latest.
