Entrepreneurs’ health insurance

Covers entrepreneurs against illness and injury.

You are your company’s most valued asset

If you fall ill or are injured in an accident, the insurance covers your medical treatment expenses and secures your income so that you can focus on your recovery.

Fast treatment and a quick return to work

Access to timely and professional treatment speeds up recovery and return to work and saves money for your business.

An insurance that also covers the entrepreneur’s pre-existing conditions

You can insure yourself regardless of your current health, as entrepreneurs’ health insurance also covers pre-existing conditions.

Medical expenses insurance for entrepreneurs

The illness or injury of an entrepreneur always has an impact on the business. This is especially true if the entrepreneur is the sole employee. Even a short absence may result in significant costs for the business. Sick leave may sound like a myth to an entrepreneur, but if you have the right insurance, you can make sure you can focus on getting better instead of worrying about work.

Entrepreneurs’ medical expenses insurance or Health Insurance covers illnesses and injuries that occur at work and during leisure time. The insurance  adds to the medical treatment services provided by occupational health care and ensures that treatment expenses are reimbursed. If you fall ill or are injured in an accident, entrepreneurs’ health insurance ensures you fast access to high-quality treatment and a speedy return to work.

Health Insurance covers examination and treatment expenses of illnesses and injuries and supplements the insurance cover offered by entrepreneurs’ accident insurance.

Customised Health Insurance for entrepreneurs

Pohjola Health Insurance is suitable for all entrepreneurs and businesses. A prerequisite for granting the insurance is that the entrepreneur has statutory self-employed persons’ accident insurance at Pohjola Insurance. Health Insurance policies are generally tax exempt, with the exception of Super Health Insurance.

An entrepreneur falling ill and staff absences can slow down business operations. If you wish to offer medical expenses insurance to your employees, the policy can be customised to meet the needs of all your personnel. Ask our experts for more information and leave a contact request.

Medical treatment expenses insurance for businesses is a medical expenses insurance taken out by the employer to supplement statutory insurance cover and occupational health care services. It covers examination and medical treatment expenses in Finland that result from illness or injury. The insurance gives the entrepreneur and employees fast access to appropriate treatment in order to save costs.

Health Insurance does not pay out a daily sickness allowance.

As an entrepreneur, you are entitled to Kela's sickness allowance and partial sickness allowance. If the illness is prolonged, financial support can be provided by a rehabilitation subsidy or disability pension.

If you fall ill, you can apply for an entrepreneur's sickness allowance from Kela. The sickness allowance is a compensation for loss of income due to disability lasting less than one year, while an illness lasting less than 10 days is compensated with YEL daily allowance. To receive a YEL daily allowance, your YEL pension insurance must be valid on the day of falling ill.

The amount of sickness allowance is calculated based on your annual income, which is based on the YEL income when you are an entrepreneur.
