Increased fee for missed care visits

Växjö • Publicerad 30 december 2019

More than 30,000 patients were absent or canceled their visits in care late in 2019. As of January 1, 2020, the fee for those patients who do not come to their booked visit to the Kronoberg region will double.

- Missed visits and late calls are an unnecessary cost for the care. Therefore, we urge everyone to cancel their time if they cannot make it, then you would also give the opportunity for another patient to have the time. This means that the care queues will be shorter, says the regional board chairman Mikael Johansson (M).

The new costs from 2020 will be 300 Swedish crowns for a missed doctor's visit to primary care, 600 Swedish crowns for a missed doctor's visit to county health care and 200 Swedish crowns for a missed visit to other healthcare personnel.
