Client fees for referred patients
If you arrive at Heart Hospital with a letter of referral, you only pay the normal public-sector fee.
Heart Hospital fees (from January 2019)
Clinic fee 41,20 € per visit*
Hospital inpatient fee 47,90 € per 24 hours of treatment*
*) The charges comply with the laws and regulations governing social and healthcare service charges. The patient doesn’t incur extra charges for the medical procedure or surgery.
The treatment is invoiced by The Pirkanmaa Hospital District Joint Municipal.
Maximum payable for social and healthcare client fees
During the calendar year, the public healthcare costs incurred by the client are subject to an annual ceiling, which in 2018–2019 is 683 €. The client is in charge of monitoring the payments and the transfer of payment information between service providers.
Kela reimburses the patient for their travel costs (usually by the cheapest means of transport) to hospital or rehabilitation.
More information on social security during sickness can be obtained from your department, Kela, and the unemployment funds of trade unions.
Home-help services to support convalescence
Municipal home-help services are provided on demand. In addition, several private service providers and organisations provide home-help services. If necessary, you may contact the social worker of your department, or the service provider directly.
