At the health care centre Wetterhälsan international students can also get help to make an application for a sickness benefit, for the students who are covered by the insurances that the university signed with Kammarkollegiet (The Swedish State’s Insurance for Foreign Students in Sweden and The Swedish State’s Insurance for Fee-Paying Students). Health care costs are then regulated between Wetterhälsan, the university and the insurance company.
