What are healthcare services like in Norway?
We asked retirees if they have access to good medical care in Norway. They wrote...
"In Norway, health care services are known for being universal, comprehensive and of high quality. All permanent residents are covered by the state health care system and are eligible for a variety of health services, including primary and specialist care, hospital services, and preventive health services. Certain services such as dental care, physiotherapy and some medicines are not covered and must be paid for out of pocket. Norway also offers free or low-cost medical, nursing, and occupational therapy services to children with special needs or disabilities," remarked another expat in Norway.
