How it works

The high-cost threshold incrementally reduces patient costs for prescription medicines.

The high cost threshold applies as before for a 12 month period from the first purchase.

The high cost threshold starts to apply after purchases amounting to 1,125 SEK for prescription medicines during a 12 month period.

The maximum cost for a patient for prescription medicines in the high cost threshold system is 2,250 SEK during a 12-month period.

The high cost threshold system decreases your costs for prescription medicines in stages

The patient pays a full price for their medicines up until 1,125 SEK. Following this the discount system comes into effect:

  • Between 1,125 SEK and 2,147 SEK you pay 50 percent of the cost of the medicine
  • Between 2,148 SEK and 3,990 SEK you pay 25 percent of the cost of the medicine
  • Between 3,991 SEK and 5,522 SEK you pay 10 percent of the cost of the medicine

If a patient has bought medicines on prescription for 2,250 SEK within a 12 month period then they do not pay more for their medicines during the remaining time in that period.

Prescribed drugs in the reimbursement system are free for children under 18 years of age.

From January 1st 2017, contraceptives in the reimbursement system are free for people under the age of 21.
