I am coming to Stockholm for master studies for 2 years, my pregnant wife will also be coming along on dependent visa. We will apply for personnummer when arrived. I have couple of questions:

Will my wife get same health care as swedish citizen while I have applied for personummer, considering it can take up to 4 weeks for it to arrive?

Like the new born child, will my wife also be entitled for free card when the patient cost exceeds 1,100 SEK. Will the high cost limit is shared by whole family or wife and child will have a separate account?

It is not 100% certain you will get a personal number, it depends on how long your permit is for etc... and what mood Skatteverket are in at the time you apply!

As for the free card, that is individual except children who live at the same address and are part of the same household/family, who are grouped together. So in simple terms ... You, your wife and your children are all treated as individual. If you take th echild to the doctor it is counted as the childs cost, not wife + child.

And since your wife is already pregnant, it is advisable to have medical insurance that covers the period up-until you get person number.

Reads like yet another academic wanting to get best part of a free ride by bringing his pregnant wife along whilst he is studying.

America spent 17.3% of its gross domestic product on health care in 2009 amounting to $7,129 per person each year on health care...more than any other country in the world. With 17 cents of every dollar Americans spent keeping our country healthy, it's no wonder the government is determined to reform the system. What follows is a systematic attempt to peel away the layers of health care, helping you become an informed health care consumer and an incontrovertible debater when discussing Health specialist Dr. Yogi.
