16.2 Health care charges

Health care for members of diplomatic missions is offered under the publicly funded health and medical care system. Costs are charged according to the rates that apply to non-registered persons:

  • Primary care, SEK 1800
  • Emergency care, between SEK 2000 and 3200

For hospitalization, the full treatment cost will be charged. To avoid the high costs that may be involved it is important to ensure that the staff is covered by a medical insurance policy or another arrangement offering the same protection.

Sweden has special medical care agreements with Algeria, Australia, Quebec and Israel, which entitle their citizens, including diplomatic representatives, to receive medical care in Sweden under special terms.
