Healthcare in Sweden
how does the healthcare system works in Sweden ? Is it efficient ?
What are the main differences between public and private sectors?
Is it recommended to purchase private health insurance in Sweden?
Thanks in advance for sharing your experience !

Re: Healthcare in Sweden
You do not need to purchase "private health care" in Sweden or, any form of health care for that matter. The system functions in a way that a part your tax deductions takes care of this, plus your employer throws in his bit also..(National Insurance) FOR EXAMPLE....i been here since 1991 and been working at different types of jobs; had a knee operation in 2007 that would have cost me about $30.000US if i was living in the USA...my NA took care of this, all i payed was a few pennies for my hospital stay/meals for 5days.
