The fund participates in the travel expenses of fund members who need to travel between different parts of the country for operation or examination upon doctor’s advice, on grounds of themselves, their partners or children, on condition that it has
been paid to the fund on their behalf for 6 of the last 12 months. An application for
support must be filed to the State Social Security Institution. If the request is turned
down, the fund pays 10.000 kr. for 250 – 400 km driving and 15.000 kr. for driving
exceeding 400 km. Airfares up to 15.000 kr. are paid by the fund. It will be paid for a
maximum of three journeys during a 12 month period. The fund administration is
permitted to deviate from these criteria if important reasons are given.
