A service voucher is one way of organizing the municipality's statutory social and health care services. Getting a service voucher requires an assessment of the need for care or services, as well as a service decision or referral. After receiving the service voucher decision, the customer selects the service provider, and agrees to purchase the service with a service producer of their choice approved by the city. The use of service vouchers is regulated by the Act on Social and Health Care Service Vouchers (569/2009).
