Healthcare in Sweden

The website 1177.se is the Swedish healthcare system’s dedicated website, it contains information about how healthcare works in Sweden, how to seek healthcare, and more. 1177 is also a telephone number.

The cost of healthcare services in Sweden depends, among other things, on which country you are insured in, and the type of healthcare you require. There are different rules for different countries. This also applies to Swedish citizens who are living outside of Sweden (utlandssvenskar).

Most people who come from a country outside of the EU/EEA or Switzerland will be required to pay the full cost themselves if they need healthcare services in Sweden. This applies to emergency, necessary, and planned care.
