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, 15.000 kr. for driving
400-600 km, 20.000 kr. for driving 600-800 km and 25.000 kr for exceeding 800 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.
