You must obtain documentation of all the medical investigations/treatment you have undergone. You must retain the original receipts and the packaging of any medication.
All documentation must be in Norwegian, Danish, Swedish or English. You should therefore try to get the documentation issued in one of these languages. If the original documents are in another language, Helfo may, if necessary, ask you to have them translated. You must pay for the translation yourself. If you enclose a translation, you must also enclose the original.
If you apply as a voluntary member of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme, you must complete the Helfo application form and send
enclosing the required documentation, to Helfo. This must be done within six months from each treatment date.
The application must be sent to: Helfo, Postboks 2415, 3104 Tønsberg.
To fill out the form:
- Use a black or dark blue pen.
- Use the form as the front, with attachments/receipts behind.
- Attachments/receipts are to be enclosed using paper clips. Do not use glue, tape or staples.
- Only original receipts are to be enclosed, and they must be legible.
- Please include your signature.
Kenneth has decided to remain in Thailand even if it means he has to cover a large percentage of the costs of treatment himself. However, a fraction will be covered by Helfo. He sends the application form to Helfo, enclosing the original receipts and documentation as proof that he has received the treatment. He takes care to do this within six months from each treatment date.
