Abstract [en]

The Swedish health care system is based on equal access and affordability for the patient. However, the supply side of health care in Sweden is not always equal, as private, self-employed physicians earn considerably higher wages than physicians who are publicly employed. By analysing statistical data, evaluating differences between the private and public labour markets and considering recent health care reforms, it can be concluded the most probable cause for higher wages in the private sector compared to the public sector is the occurrence of patients paying out of pocket and a higher incentive for efficiency in the private sector.
