Patient Fees Clarified for Online Doctor Consultations in Sweden

Country Correspondent: Roosa Tikkanen

The Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (SKL) has recommended a minimum patient fee of SEK 100 (USD 12) for digital doctor visits.

In a press release, SKL maintained that the new, lower reimbursement will disincentivize unnecessary visits, but will still support the growth of digital services.
