About high-cost cover and free cards
High-cost protection means that you do not have to pay more than SEK 1,400 per year for medical care. If you reach the high-cost limit within a year, you get a free card.
Parents who have several children under the age of 18 in their care receive a fee waiver when the combined cost of the children's patient fees is €1,400.
In Stockholm County, your fees are registered electronically. Read more about high-cost protection and free cards in Stockholm County.
Fee for no-show or late rebooking
You will be charged a fee of SEK 400 if you do not cancel your planned treatment in good time, and do not have a valid reason. You can read more about it here.
However, you still do not have to pay a no-show fee if you have symptoms of a cold and cancel your appointment, even with less than 24 hours' notice. This exception is made because of the COVID-19 infection. However, you need to contact the clinic and let them know that you are unable to attend before the scheduled appointment.
How to pay
Pay by card or cash
If you do not have cash or card with you on your visit, you should be able to pay by invoice (30-day invoice).
Care on instalment plan
You can pay in installments if the cost of your care exceeds SEK 300 in a month. You can then pay the amount over SEK 300 the following month. Only applies to outpatient care. Contact your healthcare provider for more information.
