Free medical travel applies to travel to and from health care in your home municipality.
There are several options to travel free of charge for the visit:
- Digital care ticket - If you travel to and from Folktandvården, you can use a digital care ticket
- Travel by bus on paper summons to the visit
- Travel by bus with the receipt from the visit home
- Pay for travel by bus or train yourself and be reimbursed afterwards
- Travel by Patient transport if it is not possible for you to travel by bus or train
Travel by summon to visit and receipt home
You can use your paper summon when you travel by bus to your care visit. From the care visit, the receipt for the care visit serves as a ticket.
You can not combine a Accompanying card (Ledsagarbevis) with a notice of care or a receipt from the care visit.
Pay for your trip yourself by bus or train
You can pay for a ticket and get your money back. This applies to both bus and train. If you pay for your ticket yourself, you need to fill in a form for sick leave compensation and send it to the sick leave unit to receive compensation.
If you travel by train, you pay for the trip yourself and then get your money back. You need to fill in and send the sick leave compensation form to the sick leave unit.
Travel with a digital Care Ticket
If you are traveling to Folktandvården, you can use a digital Care Ticket. It makes it easy for you who do not receive a paper summons to still travel free of charge to care.
On the way home, the receipt from the visit serves as a travel document.
In order for you to be able to use a digital Care Ticket, the following is required:
- Folktandvården needs to have your current mobile phone number
- You need to have downloaded the latest version of our app
This is how it works
You will receive an SMS from Folktandvården when the Care Ticket is available to download in our app. The text message arrives no later than 4 hours before the booked visit and the ticket is valid on the same day as the visit. Get the ticket via the link you receive in your text message.
When you have clicked on the link in the text message, the app opens. To pick up your Care Ticket, press the green "Hämta biljett" button.
If you are under 20 years of age, an accompanying guardian can travel with the same ticket as you.
If you live far from a stop
If you live far from the nearest bus stop, you can get a free connecting trip with Service Travel vehicles or receive compensation for your own car. If it is not possible for you to travel by public transport to your nearest care unit, you can travel with a Service Travel vehicle or your own car for a fee. Contact the medical travel unit and we will help you.
