16.3 Planned medical care

Planned medical care for staff members of diplomatic missions is coordinated by the International Patient Office at Karolinska University Hospital, which is part of Region Stockholm. Members of the staff of diplomatic missions from embassies within the EU should contact the Social Insurance Agency in their home country in order to receive the entitlement documents for healthcare in Sweden (see chapter 16.4 of the diplomatic guide). 

Access is provided to Region Stockholm hospitals and various specialist clinics for specialized or highly specialized care. The International Patient Office at Karolinska University Hospital assists in payment procedures, including payment guarantees from an embassy.

To apply for medical treatment, contact the International Patient Office by filling in the online Application Form at Karolinska University Hospital's website, or send an e-mail to internationalpatient.karolinska@sll.se.
