Helfo and Equian have concluded a cooperation agreement. Expenses due to a medical condition are covered under the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme rules.
You must contact Equian personally to arrange to use their services. If you choose to use Equian, you have to use them for all of your healthcare expenses in the USA.
If you are a student or researcher and choose to register with Equian, Equian can provide confirmation for your institution that you are covered for healthcare expenses you might incur during your stay abroad. In most cases, your Equian cover will be approved by the institution, and you will be exempt from having to take out health insurance through them. However, approval of Equian cover is discretionary on the part of the institution. At certain institutions, you may be required to take out separate health insurance.
Helfo will share your personal- and health information with Equian. This will be done in accordance with the privacy laws. If you, however, do not wish to share your personal information, please contact Helfo. You will then have to pay for any health expenses and request a refund from Helfo afterwards.
