Health care costs have been rising for several years. At over $7,000 per person and year more money is spent on health care in the USA than in any other nation in the world. We compared with Sweden.

There are regional differences. For the cheapest healthcare, plant yourself in Östergötland, Kronoberg or Skåne. These three regions are the ones with the cheapest healthcare in all of Sweden, according to daily Sydsvenska Dagbladet, which made a compilation of information from all Swedish municipalities and county councils. Stockholm is the 8th most expensive place in Sweden, with an average cost of 21 657 SEK ($3,452).
