The same applies to dental injuries resulting from accidents in Sweden. Both the treatment and the cost must be approved by Kammarkollegiet first.
If a dental injury is classed as an occupational injury, the matter of whether or not the Swedish Social Insurance Agency can cover the costs associated with dental care shall be examined first. Kammarkollegiet shall then take a standpoint on whether the dental injury can be covered in accordance with this section.

A person who travels to an EU/EEA country, Switzerland or to another Convention Country must have a certificate from the Swedish Social Insurance Agency which shows that he or she belongs to that country, so that he or she is sure to receive medical treatment in accordance with EU/EEA regulations and the Convention, i.e., without incurring any costs other than patient fees, where applicable.
A person who travels to a non-convention country must carry a personal insurance card (Swedish State Business Travel Insurance Certificate). The documentation required for these cards is provided by Kammarkollegiet and issued by the respective authority. The purpose of the card is for the insured to be able to have quick access to emergency medical treatment as it allows the hospital to establish immediately that the patient has insurance that covers the costs.
184.108.40.206 Provision on 2.5
In the event of serious illness, admission to hospital, the need for home transport or other active assistance abroad, the insured must first contact Falck Global Assistance before the hospital care or home transport commences.

Damage to or loss of transported property must be reported to the transport company. In the first instance, the hotel or transport company's liability, commitment or guarantee must be enquired after and utilized.
The insured person must observe normal prudence, i.e., adequately handle and store the property and otherwise do what can reasonably be required in order to avoid theft or other damage. To leave money in a hotel room or to leave property liable to stolen in a car, for example, is generally considered careless.

2.6.4 Rules of compensation
In the event of damage to property, any substantiated reparation costs are covered to a maximum amount corresponding to the market value of the property prior to the damage.

A payment from Falck Global Assistance should not be considered compensation for damages; it is a loan from Kammarkollegiet to the insured person. During settlement of the claim, the loaned amount is deducted from the compensation for damages. Where necessary, the insured person is therefore liable to repay Kammarkollegiet the difference between the loan and the compensation for damages.

5.1 Appendix 1
Special terms and conditions for business abroad in the service of the ministry for foreign affairs
In addition to what is stated in section 1. Scope, definitions and deductibles, the insurance also covers all types of travel where the State pays half of the travel costs, e.g., journeys home for holiday and visits by family members. The cover only applies during the travel itself, i.e., during transport between places of accommodation at each location (”door to door”), not during the stay at the location. During travel in "hardship" cases, however, the cover also applies to the location itself.
5.2 Appendix 2
Special terms and conditions for the Swedish Armed Forces
In the case of business travel abroad, the insurance cover also applies to accompanying family members (spouse, registered partner or cohabitant and children) whose journeys are paid for by the Swedish Armed Forces. The cover applies both to family members who accompany the insured person on outward and homeward journeys and who live with the insured during the entire period of service, and to family members who visit the insured person during the period of service and who live with that person during the period of their visit.
Changes of location within the place of service are not considered to fall within the category of business travel. The term place of service does not refer exclusively to the place (e.g. the building) in which the person’s work, or preparatory or finishing activities, take place; it refers, where applicable to the entire regiment site, the wing site including airfield, base site or school site, where the building is situated. In the case of service at sea, the ship is considered to be the place of service. In addition, when the ship is berthed in a military port, the place of service is considered to be the whole of the military port zone. It is thus only when a person leaves a site so defined on business that the person is considered to be on a business journey.
Commuters as defined in Chapter 3, Section 3 of the Swedish Armed Forces Agreement on Mobility and Expense Compensation and students at Swedish military colleges (including FHS) or at non-military colleges in Sweden, are covered by the insurance only during journeys of induction into and discharge from service and free journeys home. (Journeys by commuters and students from and to their temporary place of service/college or temporary home are also covered by the insurance.)
The business travel insurance also applies – subject to the limitations described in section 2.5 – to employees of Swedish Armed Forces stationed abroad. It applies 24 hours a day throughout the world, from the beginning of the first journey from Sweden until return to the place of demobilization in Sweden in connection with termination of employment. As a result of the aforesaid, the insurance applies, for example, during off-duty time in a third country. The insurance does not apply during off-duty time in Sweden. However, the insurance does apply during journeys of induction into and discharge from service in Sweden and during business travel in Sweden that is undertaken by employees of Swedish Armed Forces stationed abroad.
However, compensation under the insurance will only be paid to the extent that corresponding compensation cannot be obtained in accordance with the Swedish act (2010:449) and ordinance (2010:651) on Swedish Armed Forces Personnel in International Military Operations or the act (1999:568) and ordinance (1999:569) on Swedish Armed Forces Stationed Abroad.
Section 2.5 Medical care, dental care and home transport cover does not apply to forces stationed abroad.
However, accompanying family members of employees of armed forces stationed abroad are covered by this section if the Swedish Armed Forces have paid for the journey by the family member.
6 These terms and conditions of insurance are based on the Ordinance (1993:674) concerning insurance cover etc. in conjunction with travel on government business.
An authority under the Government is responsible for ensuring the authority's employees and contractors have insurance coverage for domestic and international travel on government business and assignments in connection with this. The provisions of this ordinance do not apply for
1. persons not employed by the state who receive state education,
2. persons covered by state personal injury insurance in accordance with Chapter 7, Section 2 of the Social Insurance Code or the provisions of Chapter 7, Section 3 of the same code,
3. employees of consultancies who are paid to carry out clearly defined assignments. Ordinance (2010:1682).
These terms and conditions apply in accordance with the Ordinance. The terms and conditions are the general terms and conditions that apply unless separate terms and conditions are agreed between the State authority and Kammarkollegiet. Such separate terms and conditions are set forth in the confirmation of insurance cover issued by Kammarkollegiet.
