If you need dental care

Tandvårdsstödet består av allmänt och särskilt tandvårdsbidrag samt ett högkostnadsskydd.

General subsidy

On 1 July every year, you receive a new dental care subsidy. There is a balance at Försäkringskassan. You do not need to apply, but rather tell the dentist or dental hygienist that you want to use your dental care subsidy to pay a part of the cost.

How large the subsidy is depends on how old you are.

  • Your annual subsidy is SEK 300 until the year you turn 29.
  • Your annual subsidy is SEK 150 from the year you turn 30 until the year you turn 74.
  • Your annual subsidy is SEK 300 starting the year you turn 75.

How does high-cost protection work?

The high-cost protection means that you only need to pay a part of the cost yourself for major treatments. Försäkringskassan compensates the dentist directly.

Special subsidised dental care

Särskilt tandvårdsbidrag är ett bidrag för dig som har en sjukdom eller funktionshinder som medför en risk för att din tandhälsa försämras.

Försäkringskassan provides a special subsidy if you have an illness or disability that increases your need for dental care. The subsidy can be used for checkups, tooth cleaning and other preventive procedures.
