ESTABLISHED AND OWNED BY HOSPITAL DISTRICTS
Finnish Mutual Patient Insurance Company was established in 2020, when the five Finnish university hospital districts decided to establish a mutual insurance company to cover their patient insurance risk in accordance with the revised 2021 Patient Insurance Act. The founding hospital districts are Helsinki and Uusimaa Hospital District, Southwest Finland Hospital District, Northern Ostrobothnia Hospital District, Pirkanmaa Hospital District and Pohjois-Savo Hospital District. The hospital districts have their respective insurance policies with our company. Approximately 3,8 million Finns are covered by our patient insurance (1.1.2023).
The founding hospital districts’ guarantee shares and patient insurance policies in Finnish Mutual Patient Insurance Company were transferred 1 January 2023 to the wellbeing services counties of Southwest Finland, North Ostrobothnia, Pirkanmaa and North Savo and the joint county authority for the Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa. The patient insurance policy held by the joint county authority for the Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa covers all four wellbeing services counties in Uusimaa and the City of Helsinki. Other insured parties are wellbeing services counties in the co-operation areas of the university wellbeing services counties and other public health care units operating in their areas.
