I'm a Norwegian citizen who lives in Sweden and commutes across the border to Norway for work. My wife is a Russian citizen who moved in with me in Sweden in November. We registered her as an EEA family member.
The Swedish authorities sent us a letter saying that she will not be covered by the Swedish health care system (since I work in Norway rather than Sweden) and that we need either a private insurance or an S1 form from Norwegian authorities.
The issue is not so much health care, we are both quite young and healthy, and we only intend to live in Sweden for a limited time. However, it looks like this issue needs to be resolved before she can even get legal residency in Sweden. That is the main matter.
This is a related to Working in Norway but living in Sweden. How and where will my wife get health care? in which the accepted answer informed me that I need to get an S1 form from Norway and fill in my wife's name under family members.
I contacted the Norwegian agency HELFO, and they said that I am not eligible to fill out an S1, as S1 is not used between the Nordic countries. However the letter from the Swedish authorities requests the S1. What should I do?
I'm attaching the letter from the Swedish authorities.
