Today I saw a doctor for fifteen minutes. Guess what that costed me? 300 SEK! That’s about 28€. That may not sound like a lot of money and compared to medical bills in other countries (hello USA) it’s probably not much. It is in Sweden though.
I know that I have a maximum of 45 minutes with the doctor so if I stayed for 45 minutes it would be 100 SEK (9€) per fifteen minutes. Which still is a lot. Now I only stayed for fifteen minutes though so my visit costed me 20 SEK (2€) a minute! I wish they had charged me per minute instead. Or even better, that I had talked to the doctor on the phone instead because this visit was pointless. We talked about my medicine, she said we’ll continue with the same dose and gave me new prescriptions and that was that. Well that’s 300 well spent!
