Compensation for costs from a personal injury

If you have costs for dental care, assistive devices, or medical care abroad due to a personal injury, you can receive compensation from Försäkringskassan. If you are a recruit, you can also receive compensation for medical care in Sweden.

 

Can I receive compensation for dental care costs?

Yes, if

  • you were injured while performing your military service according to the Total Defence Service Duty Act, you appear for enrolment or another form of drafting under this Act, you undergo military training as part of the Armed Forces as a recruit, or if you participate in rescue services
  • the injury has been approved as a personal injury by Försäkringskassan
  • the treatment is necessary due to the injury
  • the dentist is affiliated with Försäkringskassan
  • you have a receipt or treatment proposal from your dentist

How do I apply?

1. Report the injury

Tell your closest supervisor, manager or the like that you were injured or have become sick through your operations or were injured on your way to or from the operations. He/she must then report the injury to Försäkringskassan.

If the injury first becomes apparent after you have left military or civil defence service, report the injury to Försäkringskassan yourself. Use the form 9210 Registration of occupational injury or personal injury to report it yourself.
