With the freedom of choice introduced by the social welfare and health care reform, as a Finn you can choose your basic health care service provider. Aava Medical Centre is developing Finnish health care by participating in the freedom of choice experiment conducted in Central Uusimaa.
Aava Hyvinkää, Tuusula and Järvenpää are involved in the experiment!
The freedom of choice experiment will begin at Aava clinics in Hyvinkää, Tuusula and Järvenpää in May 2017.
Choose a 100% Finnish service provider – become listed as an Aava customer.
If you wish to choose Aava as your service provider in the freedom of choice experiment, become listed as an Aava customer. The listing link starts to work when the municipality opens the service.
Three alternative listing methods
1. Via the Internet. Go the address valinta.keski-uudenmaansote.fi. For listing in the Internet, you need web bank credentials, a mobile certification or an electronic ID card.
2. At an Aava clinic. Visit the Aava clinic (Hyvinkää, Tuusula and Järvenpää) where you want to become listed. Welcome!
3. At a health centre. Visit the health centre’s patient office. Municipal service points also help you make the choice.
