You can now claim reimbursement for your expenses on healthcare within the specialist health service in other countries within the EU/EEA if the treatment is equivalent to the healthcare you would have received in Norway. You can then be reimbursed for expenses for medical investigations and/or treatment at a hospital or outpatient clinic.
Your entitlement to reimbursement applies both if you travel abroad for the purpose of receiving healthcare and if you are staying in another EU/EEA country when the need for healthcare arises. Note, however, that this scheme is not applicable to Switzerland.
