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. 

Further information about the rules that apply to medical journeys is available at 1177 Healthcare Guide.

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 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.  

An expense claim form for travel for medical reasons is available at 1177.
