Socialist Swedes buy private insurance to avoid 1 year wait

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

One in ten Swedes now has private health insurance, often through their employers, with some recipients stating it makes business sense to be seen quickly rather than languish in national health care queues. More than half a million Swedes now have private health insurance, showed a new review from industry organization Swedish Insurance (Svensk Försäkring).

“It’s quicker to get a colleague back to work if you have an operation in two weeks’ time rather than having to wait for a year,” told to Sveriges Radio. “It’s terrible that I, as a young person, don’t feel I can trust the health care system to take care of me.” The insurance plan guarantees that she can see a specialist within four working days, and get a time for surgery, if needed, within 15.

“Why can Albania operate its healthcare services with practically zero waiting times, and Sweden cannot?” reports the Health Consumer Powerhouse.

Health system wait times in Sweden were deemed so lengthy that they pulled Sweden down the European ranking despite the country having technically advanced healthcare at its disposal.

“The Swedish score for technically excellent healthcare services is dragged down by the seemingly never-ending story of access/waiting time problems,”. The national efforts to guarantee patient care had not helped to cut the delays significantly.

In its year-ahead report, industry organization Swedish Insurance said many people now felt they did not know what they could expect from their health care providers.

“There is a lack of certainty about what the individual can expect from public welfare and which needs have to be taken care of in another manner,” the report authors noted.
