no personal experience, but what I have heard is there is no lines.
..but much much much much much.........much much more expensive than the normal "cow lines" of the hospitals.

I have a private insurance for accidents with Veritas.

Insures for loss of income after accident, temporary/permanent invalidity and in case of death spouse/family will get some to pay your depts. And you can go to private clinics.
Premium in different levels, depending on how much you want to be insured for.

I'm not quite sure how it is with the 'normal' private health insurance. According to their brochure it covers the standard doctor's costs, but not specific treatments (they actually mention there that getting a glass eye isn't insured :shock: )

Get your hands on some brochures and compare...

I looked and found it hard, if not impossible to get any without first having KELA. So if you don't qualify for that good luck.

That's where the partner/spouse/registered cohabitant comes in handy again 8) Live in the same house and you can take an insurance on her name that covers the whole family if necessary :wink:

Thanks Peter, thanks Neil,

I've emailed Skandia out of curiosity. But I'm pretty sure I won't be able to afford it.

Diacor provide medical services but not insurance (as far as I could see).

I assume that Sampo and Pohjola also provide health insurance, but I couldn't find those on their websites.
