If you live in Sweden and want to get treatment at a Mandometer clinic, but you do not live in Stockholm County or Västra Götaland County

All residents in Sweden are entitled to seek care and treatment from specialists domiciled anywhere in Sweden. However, please note that this applies to outpatient care only. Further, there are some requirements that need to be satisfied.

If your home county requires a referral in order for you to obtain care at an outpatient clinic, you must ask your GP or other medical specialist for a referral to The Mandometer Clinic at the Karolinska University Hospital in Huddinge. You must also complete a self referral.

More about the Patient Act

What is required for a patient from one county in Sweden, say for example from  Västra Götaland County, to be entitled so to have care from a care provider domiciled in another county, say for example in Stockholm County?

  1. Firstly, the patient must be eligible to receive care in the other County, in the example Stockholm County. This means that the regulations regarding referrals that apply in the other County Council, in the example Stockholm County, must be satisfied. If the other County Council accepts “self referral”, then this will apply also for patients from Counties outside of Stockholm, and the patient shall be entitled to receive care from the other County Council, always, of course, subject to that the patient is in need of care.
  2. Secondly, those regulations regarding referrals that apply in the County Council where the patient has domicile must also be satisfied. This is because otherwise the other County Council (that will provide the care) will not be paid by the home County Council. It is the provider of the care that shall control whether this requirement has been satisfied.

Which waiting list rules will apply?

Each County Council will apply the one and the same waiting list for all patients that are seeking care in the County. It is the urgency to receive care that will decide which patient shall be offered care. Please observe that a guarantee to be offered care, which a County has granted its residents, will apply only in the County where the patient has residence. If the patient has sought care in his or her home County, or declined an offer to receive care in that County, the guarantee cannot be called upon, even if the patient has to wait for care in the other County.

Are patients entitled to have compensation for travel and accommodation costs when patients are seeking care outside of their home counties?

? The answer is no, patients are not entitled to compensation for travel and accommodation if they choose to seek care/treatment in another county. However, should an unforeseen need to receive care that requires the patient to have transport, the patient can be entitled to be reimbursed for travel costs.
