Description

The occupational health care statistics contain data on the occupational health services for which Kela provides reimbursements. Employers are required to arrange for the delivery of occupational health services for their employees as prescribed by law. In addition, employers may, but are not required to, to provide employees with access to general practitioner level medical care. Self-employed persons may choose to arrange for both preventive and curative occupational health cover for themselves, but are not required to do so. Employers and self-employed persons are eligible for compensation from the National Health Insurance scheme for their occupational health costs. Claims for compensation must be filed with Kela.
