Socialist medicine in action

More than half a million Swedes now have private health insurance, a new review from industry organization Swedish Insurance () says. In eight out of ten cases, the person's employer had offered them the private insurance deal.
"It's quicker to get a colleague back to work if you have an operation in two weeks' time rather than having to wait for a year," privately insured Anna Norlander told Sveriges Radio. "It's terrible that I, as a young person, don't feel I can trust the health care system to take care of me." The insurance plan guarantees that she can see a specialist within four working days, and get a time for surgery, if needed, within 15.  [Source]           [BJS]
