Subsidised medicine

Hägglund proposes change in high-cost protection

The Minister of Health and Social Affairs, Göran Hägglund, has proposed raising the so called high-cost protection for medicine.

According to the current rules a person only pays 1 800 Swedish kronor, or $285, for medicine per year, anything above this amount is subsidised by the government.

But Hägglund says that the current amount, which was set in 1999, should be adapted to inflation or the government is forced to pay more and more every year.

Similar high-cost protections schemes are set in place for dental care and regular healthcare as well, but Hägglund has not included these in his proposal.
