The fees are used towards the costs of providing the Kanta services

The fees are used for covering the costs of maintaining the Kanta Services and the certification services provided by the Population Register Centre (the Digital and Population Data Services Agency as of 1 January 2020). The costs of maintaining the patient data management service and the national archiving service are charged to the healthcare service providers that are using these services.

A fee corresponding to the costs of providing the service is charged for the recording of e-prescriptions and their dispensing data and for the use of the Prescription Centre, the Prescription Archive and the Pharmaceutical Database. An e-prescription issued means one prescribed medicine. Cancelled e-prescriptions are also subject to a user fee.

The amount of the user fee is determined in a decree of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health (1054/2019). The user fees for 2020 are based on a forecast of the use of the services.

The surplus of user fees for 2018 has been taken into account in determining the user fees for 2020. Any surplus or deficit in user fees for 2019 will be taken into account in 2021.
