Right to medical care

Once you are registered in Sweden, you are entitled to medical care under the same terms as others who live in Sweden. This means that you pay the standard patient fee for care in the public healthcare system.

Insured in Sweden

You are generally insured in Sweden if you live in Sweden. This means that you may be entitled to various forms of compensation from Försäkringskassan. You do not need to report to or register with Försäkringskassan.before you apply for compensation. If you have a child under 16 years of age or work in another EU/EEA country or Switzerland, other rules may apply.
