Health Minister Rules Out Return To Old Dental System

Publicerat fredag 14 oktober 2005 kl 11.28

Sweden’s Health Minister Ylva Johansson has ruled out calls from within her own party to bring dental care back into the overall health care system to reduce sky high costs for members of the public.

Since the government took dental care out of the health care system, where there was a relatively low ceiling on how much a person would have to pay for a filling, costs have since soared with lower paid workers avoiding the dentist altogether as too expensive.

The health minister has told her Social Democratic colleagues, ahead of their party congress, that it would cost too much to return to the old system, but she was looking at ways at restructuring the current dental set-up to make it more affordable for the average man or woman in the street to go for a regular check-up.
