We asked expats in Sweden if they have access to public healthcare in Sweden. And, if they do have access, what is it like. They wrote...

"Yes, as a foreigner living in Sweden, you will have access to public healthcare. Sweden has a comprehensive public healthcare system that is funded by taxes and is free for all residents. The healthcare system is highly rated and provides a wide range of services, including primary care, specialist care, hospital care, and mental health services. The quality of care is generally very good, and the system is designed to ensure that everyone has access to the care they need," remarked another expat who made the move to Sweden.
