Patient fees

Patientavgifter - engelskaThe content concerns Västerbotten

The high-cost protection that is in place for healthcare services means that you will pay no more than SEK 1, 300 in patient fees during any 12-month period. Some services, such as vaccinations, are not covered by this protection.

Certain types of appointment are free of charge. For example: 

  • Gynaecological cell tests
  • Mammography screening
  • Tobacco cessation
  • Appointments at children’s healthcare centres, midwifery clinics, and specialist maternity care departments
  • Appointments for those aged 19 or younger, and those aged 85 or older. 

If you are admitted to a hospital or cottage hospital, you will pay SEK 120 for each 24 hours of care. 

If you do not come to a pre-booked appointment

If you do not come to a pre-booked appointment and you have not informed us of this before, you will be charged SEK 250.

For children and young people who are not of age, it is their guardian(s) who pay this fee.
