Healthcare in Sweden for visitors from another EU/EEA country
If you are insured in another EU/EEA country, you can receive emergency or planned medical treatment in Sweden. Planned medical treatment means that you travel to Sweden in order to receive treatment.
Sweden has two national contact points for medical care in another EU/EEA country. Försäkringskassan is responsible for providing information to individuals who are insured in Sweden. If you are insured in another EU/EEA country, please contact the other national contact point, namely the National Board of Health and Welfare.
