 New rules regarding reimbursement for medicine costs

As an employee at KTH you can receive compensation for prescription medicine that is by law covered by the Swedish high-cost insurance. The new rule from 1 January 2024, is that you can only apply for reimbursement for medicine costs once a year. Reimbursement for medicines is a taxable benefit. You will therefore be taxed on the subsidy you receive from KTH.

How to apply for compensation for prescripted medicine

You can only apply once a year. The application must be registered no later than 31 January of the following year.

You register for the compensation via KTH for me by using the benefit called "Digital receipt - Medicines".

In order to be entitled to this reimbursement, you must also prove your costs with a register extract from the Swedish eHealth Agency's high-cost database. Be sure to request an extract from the register for high-cost cover well in advance of your application. High-cost protection • E-hälsomyndigheten ( .

Wait to apply until you reach the free card or until 31 January at the latest

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 a 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).
