Note! All students eligible for our services are also required to pay a university student health care fee to Kela. The amount of the fee is decided annually by the Government and the fee is paid to Kela twice a year on a semester-by-semester basis. In 2021, the amount of the fee is 71.6 euros, so the fee per semester is 35.8 euros. More detailed information related to the payment and instructions for payment can be found on Kela’s website.
