You therefore need to check with a national insurance institution in the country where you are studying whether they consider that you live there. Sidebilde Helfo / Morten Rakke Membership of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme In the EU/EEA, students must be covered by the national insurance legislation of the country of residence. In principle, you will not be considered to reside in the country where you are studying, unless you have plans to live there permanently. Steg 1 innholdAs a student in an EU/EEA country, in principle, you will be covered by the national insurance legislation of your country of residence. Unless you have plans to live permanently in the country where you are studying, you will not be considered as resident there. If you need to clarify where you are considered to reside, you should check with the relevant national insurance institution in the country where you are studying.If you are not considered to reside in the country where you are studying, as a full-time student at a college or university approved by the Norwegian State Educational Loan Fund or the NAV National Office for Social Insurance Abroad, you retain membership of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme while you are studying. You should however check whether the country where you are studying has special national insurance rules for students, since you cannot have national insurance cover in more than one country.The teaching and examinations must take place at the foreign educational institution. Students taking the ex. phil. and ex. fac. study programmes abroad are not considered to be full-time students and therefore do not have rights to healthcare reimbursements as students. If you undertake work of any kind while studying abroad, you lose your membership of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme. Find out more about membership of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme on NAV's website.If you are not considered a resident in the country where you are studying, you need to take a European Health Insurance Card with you from Norway. Eksempel Emma is taking a one-year MBA course in Paris. She takes a European Health Insurance Card with her. Emma does not work while she is studying. So she retains membership of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme. Your rights If you require healthcare during your period of study abroad, you need to show your European Health Insurance Card. Steg 2 innholdThe European Health Insurance Card entitles you to healthcare in the country where you are studying. You will be entitled to access the public health service in the same way as the residents of the country where you are studying.The European Health Insurance Card cannot be used in the private health service. It should not be necessary to show your European Health Insurance Card elsewhere in the Nordic Region, but it is a good idea to take it with you anyway.The same applies to your family members who are not gainfully employed in the country where you are studying. If, on assessment, the country where you are studying judges that your family members should be considered as resident in the country, they shall be entitled to healthcare in accordance with the country's legislation. (Note that special rules apply in these countries: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia).If you nonetheless choose to use the private health service, you will need to pay the expenses out of pocket and apply to Helfo for reimbursement afterwards.

She shows her European Health Insurance Card and has to pay the same user fees as a French citizen. Some weeks after the treatment, Emma wishes to have a new x-ray taken. She has been recommended a private hospital. Here she is informed that she cannot use the European Health Insurance Card. Emma therefore looks after the receipts for the treatment at the private hospital and sends an application for reimbursement to Helfo.
