Become a patient with us

How do I become a patient at Huddinge Orthopedics?

Care guarantee in orthopedics

If you are waiting for an assessment/operation in your home county council and they cannot meet the requirement to offer you care within the care guarantee (90 days), you have the right to apply to Huddinge Ortopedia via a so-called care agreement.

It is the same patient fee that applies as if you had sought care in your region, high-cost cards and free cards apply. Medical trips are included, but you have to pay your own fee.

Freedom of choice in orthopedics

Huddinge Ortopedia has a county council agreement with the Stockholm county council in orthopedics, which allows you to apply directly to us for your orthopedic problems. The new Patient Act gives you the right to seek outpatient care throughout the country, so even if you do not live in Stockholm, you can seek help from us for your orthopedic problems via our county council agreement.

Väljer du att komma till Huddinge Ortopedi som valfrihetspatient gäller samma patientavgifter som om du hade sökt vård i din egen region. Högkostnadsskydd och frikort gäller.

Depending on where you are registered, you may need a referral and a payment bond from your home county council. Information about the rules for referrals and payment obligations can be found at 1177 Vårdguiden.

If you choose to come to Huddinge Ortopedia as a free-of-choice patient, the same patient fees apply as if you had sought treatment in your region. High-cost cover and free cards apply, but medical trips do not, you have to cover the cost yourself.

with all the planning and practical information before your operation.

How do I become a freedom of choice patient?

  • In order to become a patient with us, you need a referral sent from your health center, occupational health care, private doctor or from yourself a so-called self-referral to the hospital in your region so that you end up in the queue for a reception visit or surgery.
  • Call the freedom of choice office in your region to get information on how to go about obtaining a freedom of choice payment bond to Huddinge Ortopedia.
  • When you have received a payment commitment, it must be sent to Huddinge Ortopedia.
  • When the payment obligation is registered with us, we will contact you for further processing.

Health insurance

If you have healthcare insurance, call your insurance company and report your problems. Huddinge Ortopedia has close cooperation with almost all insurance companies. The insurance company will then help you book a quick appointment with one of our specialist trained doctors for an examination and possible investigations.

During the examination, a diagnosis is made with suggestions for continued treatment. The insurance company then makes a decision as to whether your insurance covers the recommended treatment proposal.

If your insurance does not cover the damage, the following options are available:

  • We send a referral to the county council and the care can be carried out within public care.
  • Pay for the treatment privately with gross deduction.

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact the clinic. Call us  and we will help you.
