For a number of types of treatments in Norway, the waiting lists are long. You will have to join the same queue for healthcare like anyone else in Norway.
A given hospital cannot reject you for being from another EEA country. A patient can only be rejected when this can be justified by overriding reasons of general interest.
In Norway, the health system requires everyone to have a referral from a medical professional in order to consult and be attended by the specialist health service. This will also apply to you, as a resident of another EEA country.
If you wish to receive healthcare within the public health service in Norway, you can go to «Velg behandlingssted» (Select place of treatment) to get an overview of healthcare providers. You can also choose between some private healthcare providers that are part of the public health care system through agreements.
You can also chose to receive healthcare from a private healthcare provider. These providers are obligated to treat you on the same terms as Norwegian residents.
