New rules regarding reimbursement for medicine costs in 2024

As an employee at KTH you can receive compensation for prescription medicine that is by law covered by the Swedish high-cost insurance. From 1 January 2024, you can only apply for reimbursement for medicine costs once a year. The application must be registered no later than 31 January of the following year. In order to be entitled to this reimbursement, you must prove your costs with a register extract from the Swedish eHealth Agency's high-cost database.

Example: Costs for prescription medicine made on 1 May 2024 must be registered by 31 January 2025 at the latest. Costs registered after 31 January will not be approved. Therefore, the recommendation is to wait to apply for reimbursement until you reach the threshold for free care (frikort) so that you can be reimbursed for all your expenses at once. This means that you can apply for reimbursement at any time during the year and don't have to wait until 31 January (as long as you only apply for reimbursement at one single time during the year).

You can read more about the new rules and apply for reimbursement via KTH for me , use the benefit called "Digital receipt - Medicines". For questions, please contact
