Case processing times for patient travel

Case processing times may vary depending on the nature of the expenses you apply for reimbursement for in your application.

Cases that are processed completely automatically are paid out faster. These could be applications for reimbursement of travel expenses, and no additional expenses. 

Cases that are processed manually take the longest to process. These could be applications which are submitted either by post or via Helsenorge, with a lot of documentation concerning additional expenses, and other documentations, and which must therefore be processed manually by a case officer.
