Country Correspondent: Roosa Tikkanen

A Swedish company,, recently announced it will offer free online health appointments to all Swedes. Similar to other companies, previously charged patients a membership fee to access online health care consultations. However, after purchasing a health clinic in Södermanland County, where all primary care visits are free of charge to patients, the company announced its plans to extend free online appointments to all Swedes. In other counties, patients are typically charged a fee for primary care appointments, including for online appointments. Online consultations are triaged by a nurse, and patients with higher clinical needs are referred to a primary care physician.
