Sweden has an ambivalent approach on medical tourism. Hospitals offer high quality specialised treatment, but all incoming medical tourism only amounts to a miniscule proportion of the Swedish medical care turnover.


Medical tourism numbers in

According to a 2018 EU report, the number of medical tourists (ONLY those under the EU Cross-Border Healthcare rules) for 2016 was 6,162.


Medical tourism numbers out

As 10,000 go abroad on a state paid basis it can be assumed that at least another 10,000 go overseas for non-insured treatment.
