Sidebilde Morten Rakke / Helfo Membership of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme You are considered to be a posted worker when you work temporarily in another EU/EEA country or Switzerland for your employer in Norway and receive your wages from this employer. Steg 1 innholdYou retain your mandatory membership in the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme during your temporary period of work abroad. Eksempel Petter is employed by a Norwegian oil company and is going to work for them on the Dutch continental shelf. The place where he is going to work is operated by another company, but he receives his pay from his original employer. Petter retains his mandatory membership of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme since he is considered to be a posted worker. Before you travel Before you travel, you need to request an E106 entitlement form from Helfo. This form confirms your healthcare rights in the country in which you will be working. Steg 2 innholdYou need to complete and send to Helfo«Søknad om blankett E 106 for norske arbeidstakere i annet EU/EØS-land og Sveits (40-05.02)» Bokmål | NynorskDependent family members must also be entered on the form. The form needs to be registered with the correct national insurance institution in the country in which you will be working when you arrive. Note: If you are working in one of these countries, special rules apply: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czechia, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia.

He takes the form with him to the Netherlands and contacts the Dutch national insurance authorities in order to register it. Your rights As a mandatory member of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme, you retain your right to health services in Norway. This also applies to your dependent family members shown on form E106. Steg 3 innholdSince you retain your rights to health services in Norway, you can choose to travel home to receive treatment, but you have to cover the travel costs yourself.If you opt to receive treatment in the country in which you are working, you will be entitled to health services in accordance with the EEA rules. This means your rights are essentially the same as those who live in the country. You also need to pay any user fees for the various services in the same way as the country's other inhabitants. Healthcare you receive in the country must be provided by the public health service. Eksempel After Petter has worked in the Netherlands for a month, he gets acute food poisoning. He visits a public health service doctor for treatment. Since he has registered the form in the Dutch national insurance system, the doctor can see that he is entitled to treatment in the same way as a Dutch citizen. Petter must pay a user fee, just like other inhabitants of the Netherlands.
