How large do my expenses have to be in order for me to be entitled to the special allowance for major sickness expenses?

If you are asked to do so, you must document/substantiate that you have incurred sickness expenses amounting to at least NOK 9,180 during the year.

If you have received a subsidy from the public sector in order to cover your added expenses which are attributable to your sickness, you must deduct this when calculating whether your expenses have been sufficient to enable you to claim an allowance.
