Bachelor’s and master’s students pay healthcare fee for spring 2021 to Kela

The student union fee that students pay for spring term enrolment will no longer cover the cost of the Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS), as of 1 January 2021. The healthcare fee must be paid to Kela by 31 Jan 2021.

Beginning then, bachelor’s and master’s students will themselves have to pay to Kela the healthcare fee for higher education students.
 
As the Social Insurance Institution of Finland (Kela) will not send a bill to students for this, the students need to pay the fee on their own initiative. Students may pay either through a bank transfer or Kela's e-service. See Kela’s pages for instructions: How to pay the student healthcare fee in higher education.

Only bachelor’s and master’s level students who have enrolled as attending for spring 2021 are entitled to receive FSHS services, and only they must pay the healthcare fee.
