Massage expenses are reimbursed up to the annual compensation limit. The maximum compensation limit in 2021 is EUR 120/year. The November General Fund Meeting decides on the reimbursability of massage during the following year.
No doctor’s referral is required, but receiving compensation is conditional upon the treatment provider being a qualified masseur/masseuse (the person’s right to use the occupational title of masseur/masseuse can be checked in JulkiTerhikki https://julkiterhikki.valvira.fi/).
The compensation for massage can also be used for treatments given by a chiropractor, naprapath and osteopath.
To claim reimbursement, send the payment receipt that indicates your name, the treatment provided, the sum and the treatment provider to the sickness fund. If the aforementioned information is not contained in the payment receipt, request a separate statement.
