The health care fee for students in higher education which is paid to Kela covers all FSHS services for students. We do not charge for other services or appointments.

The Finnish Student Health Services charges 40 euros for no-show appointments in which the student has not arrived at their agreed appointment. This fee will not be charged if there is an acceptable reason behind the no-show.
