When we asked expats in Oslo if healthcare and health insurance are expensive in Oslo, they wrote...
"Healthcare and health insurance in Oslo, are generally not considered expensive for residents, as the country has a comprehensive public healthcare system funded through taxes. This system provides access to a wide range of medical services, including primary care, specialist treatments, and hospital care, at little to no cost for Norwegian citizens and residents. However, some individuals may choose to purchase private health insurance for additional coverage or faster access to certain services, which can be more expensive. For non-residents or tourists, healthcare costs can be higher, and it is recommended to have travel health insurance when visiting the country," commented one expat who made the move to Oslo, Norway.
