The fund reimburses 70% of the doctor’s fee if the treatment was necessary to cure an illness other than a dental one.
For operations and comparable procedures, see ‘Operations in a private hospital’.
To receive compensation, send the forms mentioned below to the sickness fund:
- Claim form SV 127 ‘Claim – Medical care expenses incurred in Finland’.
- Statement on the treatment provided and fees charged by a doctor, SV 120.
- Payment receipt
If Kela’s reimbursement has already been deducted, you do not need to fill in a separate claim form, just send the payment receipt.
