The FSHS sends out invoices by mail or via e-invoices. Invoices will be sent into your Netposti if you are using the Netposti service. Invoices are sent on the next weekday after an appointment.
To receive e-invoices you will need to set up an e-invoicing agreement with the FSHS through your online banking system. You will be able to do this after you have received one paper invoice. Once you have set up an e-invoicing agreement, you will receive your invoices direct to your online bank, making it quick and easy for you to make payments to the FSHS. NB. International students can use e-invoicing provided that they have a Finnish identity code.
If you do not wish to set up an e-invoicing agreement, you will receive your invoices by mail.
Switch to e-invoicing
E-invoicing is easy, fast and environment-friendly:
e-invoices reach you fast
e-invoices will reach you even when you have moved (address in the FSHS data system are not automatically updated via the population register)
invoice details are always correct (recipient’s bank account number, total amount and reference number)
invoices cannot remain unpaid by mistake
invoices cannot get lost
invoices are stored in your online bank invoice archive
e-invoices are environment-friendly (the carbon footprint of an e-invoice is up to 70% smaller than that of a paper invoice)
e-invoices also save money (sending paper invoices costs the FSHS per year as much as the salary of two public health nurses, including salary-related costs).
The practice of sending PDF invoices to students’ Citizen’s accounts has been replaced by e-invoicing. PDF invoices will no longer be available.
NB. The FSHS transfers unpaid invoices to the debt collection company Visma Duetto for collection. The client is responsible for the payment of the costs incurred by the debt collection.
Request for rectification of an invoice or payment reminder
If you have complaints about an invoice or a payment reminder, you can contact us through the page
Request for rectification of an invoice.
If you have received a payment reminder about an invoice that you think you have already paid, check the following before contacting the FSHS:
Have you paid the invoice using the correct reference number?
Have you paid the invoice to the correct bank account?
Have you paid the invoice using the correct amount?
Nb. The FSHS is updating its patient data system. Unfortunately, introduction of the new system’s appointment reminder service is delayed. Appointment attendance is the responsibility of the student, even if no appointment reminder has been sent. Students will therefore be charged for missed appointments that have not been cancelled.
