Your medical charges are registered electronically in the county of Stockholm. In other words you do not need to keep a count yourself of how much you have paid or if you are entitled to a free card. If you have reached the total for a free card, this can be seen when you go to the clinic and you will not have to pay for the visit.

If you wonder how much is left before you receive a free card, you can  log on to 1177.se. Here you can see your charges and the period of validity for the free card. If you have a free card from SLL, you may also order a paper free card. You need this if you apply for  treatment in another county or from health care services in SLL who are not yet included in the e-free card service. It is also possible to ask the staff at your health care services to order a free card for you. The free card is sent to your registered address.

You may also log on to 1177.se on your mobile phone and show this to the health care provider. It is up to the health care provider to decide if this can be approved as a high-cost card or a free card.
