If you live in the county of Örebro, you can travel free of charge using public transport to and from a health care facility.
You are entitled to travel for medical reasons to and from a medical centre in your home area, and also to and from a specialist in another part of the county. If you have been referred for medical care outside the county of Örebro, special rules apply. Contact your Patient Transport Unit (Sjukreseenheten) for further information.
Travel by public transport to and from a health care facility
If you live in the county of Örebro you can travel free of charge by public transport to and from a healthcare facility using what is known as a Care Ticket (Vårdbiljett). Free travel for medical reasons includes travel to and from a medical centre in your home area, and for travel to and from a specialist in another part of the county. If you live a long way from your nearest stop/station, you are entitled to a free connection using the Special Transport Service, or you can receive payment for using your own car.
Travel by SMS call
You travel free of charge to and from your booked visit by public transport. When you book your visit yourself, you do not have a call from us that acts as a ticket on the bus. Therefore, you need to pay for the trip to the visit, but you can get paid by Region Örebro County afterwards. On the way home, your receipt for the visit fee acts as a ticket.
Travel using your own car
If it is not possible for you to travel by public transport to your nearest health care facility, you can travel using the Patient Transport on payment of a charge, or you can receive payment if you make the journey using your own car.
If you have received a certificate authorising travel for medical reasons using the Patient Transport, you can instead make the journey using your own car and receive payment of 1.85 kronor per kilometre. You will be reimbursed if the cost exceeds 50 kronor.
