Finns go south for surgery

Dec 09, 2013
From wire reports, RIGA

Facing long waiting lines for surgery, and high costs at Finland-based private medical establishments are forcing Finns to look for treatment at Estonia’s medical clinics, reports YLE. Finns also often choose dental services in Estonia, mainly because they are cheaper compared to those in Finland.

Finns also go for surgery to their southern neighbor, though for elective surgery which demands little after-operational care.

Some opt for the lower expenses and shorter waiting queues in Estonia, though many say they still do not really trust Estonian doctors. However, experts forecast an increase in popularity of such services already next year. As a result, new medical clinics have been established in Estonia.

Surgery in Estonia costs only a third of what it costs in Finland. Besides, these services are compensated for, similarly to those in Finland. Next year, even transport costs will be subject to compensation.
