Patient’s co-payment

  • The government pays much of the cost of visits to the doctor. The patient is required to pay a certain amount and the rest is paid for by the state.
  • In addition to the patient’s co-payment, the patient must also pay for bandages, shots, medicine, tests, and so on.
  • Children under the age of 16 are not required to pay the co-payment. Pregnancy check-ups are also free of charge.
  • The patient charge for a regular GP appointment is usually between 150 and 300 Norwegian kroner.

Exemption card

After you have paid a certain amount in patient charges in a calendar year, you will be entitled to an exemption card. After you have paid the total amount in patient charges, the Norwegian Health Economic Administration (HELFO) will automatically send you an exemption card by post. You must present this card when you go to the doctor’s or buy medication on reimbursable prescriptions. This means that you do not have to pay patient charges for the rest of the calendar year.
