  • Thanks I have applied for certificate for getting free medical care as I work here and paying taxes.but I am not sure how long they will take to give me the certificate? For your information vardcentral has already started to charge which is very high? What do you suggest me to do now? Logically I should not be paying as taxes are being deducted from my salary account every month.and what should I do to get the certificate as soon as possible?
  • Hello Fahria,
    thank you for your post.
    There is no such thing as free medical care in Sweden. County council (Landstinget) is responsible for the healthcare in Sweden.
