Caregivers’ accommodation charges
The Estonian Health Insurance Fund and the Estonian National Social Insurance Board finance the patient’s caregiver’s accommodation in the hospital for only those parents/caregivers who accompany children.
Caregivers accompanying adult patients shall be charged according to HNRC’s fee-charging services price list.
The Estonian Health Insurance Fund finances the basic care bed days for the parents/caregivers who accompany children during their rehabilitation
- when the child is up to 7 years old (7 included)
- when the child is up to 15 years old (15 included) and has profound or severe mobility disability or multiple disability.
The caregiver’s own contribution is 2.50€ per day and shall not exceed 25€ per treatment period.
The bed days of caregivers of children receiving self-financed services is 30,00€ and of HNRC’s adult patients (regardless of financing) are charged according to HNRC’s fee-charging services price list. The current fee is 60,00€. This bed-day fee includes accommodation and 3 meals per day.

- They are responsible for the safety and supervision of the child/person under their care when the patient is not participating in therapeutic activities: children/persons under the care of caregivers should not be left without guidance in the hospital.
