Health Insurance

In Sweden, medical treatment is very expensive if you don't have access to the public health system or a health insurance. 

Even when you do have a health insurance, you will be asked to pay the full cost of the treatment upon the visit at the medical centre and then claim that amount from the insurance agency, afterward.

Non-EU/EEA citizens/International Students:

Halmstad University provides health insurance coverage for students admitted to programmes or courses of 60 credits or less and who are required to pay tuition fee, the Swedish State’s Insurance for Fee-Paying Students (FAS).

For more information, visit Kammarkollegiet’s information pageexternal link

If you are admitted to a two year programme and have a residence permit valid for one year or more you are eligible to apply for a Swedish personal id number at the local tax office (Skatteverket)external link, after your arrival in Sweden and registration on the programme. You will be entitled to the same health benefits as Swedish citizens and pay Swedish patient fees.

When you have received the Swedish personal id number, you should change your student id no (19870102-T123) to the Swedish personal id no at Servicecenter. You need to bring the letter from the tax office and your passport.

Exchange students:

Halmstad University provides health insurance coverage for exchange students, the Swedish State’s Insurance Student IN.

Nordic and EU/EEA citizens:

If you are a citizen of any of the EU/EEA countries or Switzerland, you must register for a European Health Insurance Cardexternal link (EHIC) in your home country before coming to Sweden. You have to bring the EHIC card as this card gives you the right to medical care at the same cost as Swedes.

If you don’t obtain an EHIC in your home country, you’ll need to arrange your own insurance coverage to cover costs, as medical care without insurance can be very expensive.
