Student healthcare services for students in higher education starting 1 January 2021

Starting 1 January 2021, the Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS) will provide student healthcare services for all higher education degree 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.

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). Both Lahti and Lappeenranta service points include oral health care services. Service points are located

  • in Lahti Niemenkatu 73
  • in Lappeenranta Yliopistonkatu 34

 

Healthcare fee for students in higher education starting 1 January 2021

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.

Kela will begin to collect the healthcare fee in the spring term of 2021. The healthcare fee can be paid via Kela's e-service starting in December 2020.
Up-to-date information on the healthcare fee for higher education students and payment of the fee is available on Kela’s website.

This page will show answers to frequently asked questions about the FSHS expansion and changes in student healthcare. You can also send your own question there. FSHS aims to answer new questions every 2 to 3 weeks.

 

STUDENT INSURANCE

The LAB University of Applied Sciences has a statutory accident insurance that covers all of students while on the premises during classes (including physical exercise classes) and breaks, during excursions that are arranged as part of the curriculum and on the way directly to and from school. The insurance is valid during a work placement or a clinical practice and during related travel directly to and from the locations where the training takes place, both in Finland and abroad.

The insurance does not cover accidents that occur during trips between Finland and a country in which an international work placement or a clinical practice takes place. Students should take out separate insurance that covers the entire period they spend abroad for studies, a work placement or a clinical practice.

Students from non-EU countries must have a valid health insurance issued by reliable company or institution. Non-EU students who are studying in Finland in a degree programme as a full-time students for minimum of two years need a health insurance that covers medicine costs.
