Reimbursment for rehabilitative psychotherapy

Finnish residents, between ages 16 and 67, who are covered by the National Health Insurance of Finland (indicated by the personal Kela card), can apply for reimbursement for rehabilitative psychotherapy from Kela. Kela covers 57,60 € of the costs of 45 minute psychotherapy sessions. Rest of the costs shall be paid by the patient. Reimbursement can be granted for a minimum of 1 year (25-80 sessions) and a maximum of 3 years (75-200 sessions).

Before applying for the reimbursement you need: 1) a diagnosis of a mental disorder issued by a psychiatrist or physician, and 2) three months of treatment including a minimum of three encounters with the psychiatrist/physician after the diagnosis has been set. When three months has passed, the psychiatrist evaluates the need for rehabilitative psychotherapy and issues a Medical Certificate B, which is needed when claiming for rehabilitative psychotherapy.
