The doctor will assess whether you need bandages, creams, ointments and oils as a result of your occupational injury.
If you need any of these things for more than three months after the date of injury, the doctor must provide a statement detailing your needs.
In the medical statement, the doctor must certify that your needs are due to the approved occupational injury. The statement must specify the medical supplies that you need as a result of your occupational injury. It must also state the approximate total quantities of creams, ointments and oils that you will need per year.
You must send this statement, along with a copy of the decision from NAV approving your occupational injury, to Helfo. See "Submitting applications to Helfo digitally" further down the page.
Bandages and medical supplies must be purchased at a pharmacy or medical supplies store. This does not apply to creams, ointments and oils.
If you are receiving wound care from a community nurse, it is the municipality that is responsible for covering the expenses involved.
