Pohjola Health Insurance - High-quality and prompt care thanks to medical expenses insurance
Health insurance is a voluntary medical expenses insurance with which you can complement the statutory insurance protection of entrepreneurs and personnel as well as the occupational health services. This policy guarantees fast access to treatment and the highest standard of care for your entire personnel. The policy covers examination and medical treatment expenses in Finland incurred through illness or injury.
The work of an entrepreneur or self-employed person and an employee is often so important that even short absence incurs significant costs. It pays to invest in an efficient clinical pathway. If members of your staff fall ill, their insurance will enable them to promptly get good care. The capacity for work will be regained faster, and the sick leave will be shorter when it is possible to avoid long queues to examinations and surgical operations. Fewer and shorter sick leaves mean lower costs for your company, and more realistic budgeting.
Comprehensive medical expenses insurance is a benefit appreciated by your staff as well. It is an excellent way to reward and engage employees as well as create a positive employer image. Health insurance offered to the entire personnel is, as a rule, a fringe benefit exempt of tax.

- Comprehensive Health Insurance is a complete complement to the occupational health care services. A company doctor’s referral will give you access to a specialist at the Pohjola Hospital or our other medical partners. The policy covers examinations, treatment and surgery, performed and prescribed by a specialist. Physiotherapy is also reimbursed as an alternative to surgery for knee and shoulder illnesses and injuries.
- Standard Health Insurance lets you prepare for extended sick leaves that threaten your capacity for work. This policy covers the costs of examinations and care related to operations and specified serious diseases. The Surgery Cover covers operation performed by partner surgeons and related direct costs. The Critical illness insurance covers expenses arising from examination and treatment of cancer, myocardial infarction, stroke or multiple sclerosis.
90% of all short absences from work are due to illness, not accidents. Many injuries caused by accidents have an illness (degenerative changes and wear) as the root cause; thus, a Health Insurance policy guarantees effective treatment of those as well.
Support for maintaining health and capacity for work through a variety of therapy services
According to KELA’s sick leave statistics, musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders are a threat to employees’ capacity for work.
The Basic, Comprehensive and Extra Health Insurance provide unique opportunities for therapy. Our goal is to support the health and well-being of entrepreneurs as well as employees, and to promote function capacity in accordance with the resources of each individual.
Psychotherapy provided by a psychotherapist (up to 20 sessions) helps to proactively prevent mental disorders. Furthermore, in connection with a serious illness the insurance covers physiotherapy, psychotherapy, neuropsychotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy a maximum of 20 sessions each. In cases involving knee and shoulder injuries and illnesses, we cover costs for physiotherapy in lieu of surgical treatment.
The company must provide Pohjola Insurance with current and correct information on employees covered by Health Insurance.
We want to make the administration of your company’s insurance policies as easy as possible. You can easily report changes in the personal data of employees covered by Health Insurance in the Insurance section of op.fi.
