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 – for example because of lack of capacity.
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.
As a patient from another EEA country, you can opt to use a public-sector or private-sector healthcare provider.
You can go to «Velg behandlingssted» (Select place of treatment) to get an overview of healthcare providers. You can choose between public places of treatment and some private healthcare providers that are part of the public health care system through agreements. Other private healthcare providers you must find yourself. Read more about choosing a treatment centre.
The rules applied by your own national insurer determine the terms and conditions applicable to reimbursement.
