You who have received a certificate for Patient Travel with a service travel vehicle can instead travel with your own car. You will receive compensation afterwards.
You have the right to go on sick leave to and from:
- a health center in your home municipality
- public dental care in your home municipality
- a specialist in the county
If you have received a referral to care outside Örebro County, special rules apply. Contact the Patient transport unit for more information.
Price and mileage allowance
You will receive compensation of SEK 18.50 per mile, minus SEK 50 in own charge per one-way trip. It is Region Örebro County that pays the compensation to you. You apply for compensation via 1177.se.
There is a high-cost cover for Patient Transport. This means that you do not have to pay more than SEK 1,400 during a 12-month period. It applies to the calendar month from the first trip. When you have reached the sum for the high-cost cover, the sick trips will be free until the start month of the next year.
If you have a permit for Patient Transport and have traveled with your own car to care, you need to contact the Patient Transport Unit. Trips with your own car are not automatically registered.
