Reimbursement for the cost of overnight accommodation
You can get an accommodation allowance if it is necessary for you to stay overnight in order to arrive in time for treatment or rehabilitation or to avoid having to travel back and forth daily.
The accommodation allowance is paid to each eligible individual up to 20.18 euros per day. It can, for example, be paid to both parents if the participation of both parents in the child's hospital care is deemed necessary according to the doctor's assessment.
When you claim reimbursement for overnight accommodation costs, keep the proof of payment for six months. Kela will ask you to send it if necessary.
