Health care

There are reciprocal health agreements with most of the European countries. The agreement with the UK allows free hospital in-patient treatment and ambulance travel on presentation of a UK passport. The cost of other treatment (including tooth extractions) may be partially refunded under the Norwegian social insurance scheme.

Before leaving Norway, receipts should be presented at the social insurance office (Trygdekasse) of the district where treatment was carried out.

Chemists are called Apotek.

Standards of health care are very high.
