Hägglund told SVT that Swedes who travel to another EU country can get health care in that country if they bring the EU health insurance card, which shows that they have the right to subsidised health care in Sweden.
But Swedish Television News reports that the girl with the miscarriage, who is called Simona, does not have such a card, "just like many other Roma people who have come here from Romania".
Last summer, the Swedish parliament decided that undocumented migrants, who are living in Sweden without permission will have the same right to subsidised health care as asylum seekers. Asked if this would not cover EU migrants like Simona, Hägglund said.
"For people who are EU-citizens we have a good agreement between member states. It is a well-functioning system. And when it does not work it is usually due to the country they come from. And in this case it seems obvious that it is Romania that does not provide its citizens with this card, which means that we from the Swedish side cannot be covered for the costs that we have had."
Hägglund says he now wants to meet Romanias ambassador to Stockholm to talk about the issues. "we have to sort this out. Romania must take responsibility for its citizens so they can feel safe.
