If you are seeking treatment abroad, find out in advance the language used in the place of treatment. You are usually responsible for the costs of any interpretation yourself if you have sought heath services in another country.
If you become ill in an EU or EEA country or in Switzerland during a temporary stay and you receive treatment with the European Health Insurance Card, the treatment provider will usually arrange for interpretation, if needed. You may be invoiced for these expenses separately.
Kela does not reimburse expenses incurred from interpretation services.
