Can I have expenses for medicine and treatment covered?

If you have expenses for medicine or medical treatment that is essential for your life and health, you may apply to have these expenses covered by UDI. UDI will consider whether or not to cover your expenses.

The type of expenses you can have covered depends on whether you have an application for asylum that is being processed, whether your application has been rejected or whether you have been granted a residence permit. If you have received a final rejection of your application, the expenses must be in connection with an acute need for treatment.

The reception centre can help you to write the application and will give you more information.
