Confidentiality

All staff members have a legal duty to treat the patient’s medical and personal information in the strictest confidence.

 

Interpreter

We can assist you with interpreters during medical visit. Please inform us beforehand if you need this service. 

We only engage licensed interpreters.

 

Swedish law - in case of a mal-practice

The treatment offered by Stockholm Care AB to foreign patients is provided in Sweden by Swedish medical personnel and according to applicable Swedish healthcare regulations. Liability issues and any claims for compensation resulting from injury or mistreatment are therefore subject to review according to Swedish law. In this respect, foreign patients are covered by the same regulatory provisions as Swedish patients.

 

Accommodation and transport 

In conjunction with your treatment, we will help to arrange accommodation in a hotel, apartment or patient hostel. If necessary, we will also arrange transport to and from the airport and between your accommodation and the hospital.

Visa application

We can assist you with visa applications. In Sweden, visa matters are handled by the Swedish Migration Board.

Normally you apply for a visa at the Swedish Embassy in your home country. They will send your application to the Swedish Migration Board.

You should enclose a medical certificate from Sweden indicating when you will receive your treatment and what this entails. We can assist you with this certificate.

Finally, you must also show that you have funds deposited in Sweden for the treatment as planned and for any possible aftercare.

Treatment costs and payment 

General rules for cost calculations
Stockholm Care normally offers care to foreign patients based on flexible fees. Since there may be significant individual differences in diagnoses and treatment options, treatment costs are first estimated on the basis of available medical information and then finalised after completed treatment.

Care may be offered at a fixed rate in cases of standardised treatment methods and large patient volumes. Fixed fees generally require special agreement between the ordering party and Stockholm Care.

Calculation of costs in individual cases
In order to estimate the treatment costs we require medical documentation (in English) such as patient records, X-rays, medical reports etc. The medical documentation is submitted to the appropriate specialist clinic for assessment. The specialist clinic informs us whether treatment can be offered and, if so, of what type. The clinic will at the same time prepare a preliminary treatment plan as a basis for estimating the treatment costs. We then inform the patient whether there is a possibility of treatment and at what cost such treatment can be offered.

The patient or paying party must expressly undertake to cover all final treatment costs and make an advance payment or provide a payment guarantee for the estimated treatment costs.
 
Estimated treatment costs – final treatment costs
Besides advance payment of estimated costs we also accept guarantees from insurance companies or an E112 form (issued by the national insurance plan in the patient’s home country). Guarantees and E112 forms should be sent to us in good time before the treatment. Please note that advance payment is required before registration and treatment. If the final treatment cost is lower than the advance payment, the difference will be refunded. If the cost is higher than the advance payment, you will have to make an additional payment when the treatment is completed. You will receive a final invoice on completion of the treatment.
