How likely is it to get a free genetic test in a hospital?

Healthcare in Sweden
Can I get the genetic test for free in hospitals? Probably Not!

When it comes to understanding your risk of hereditary cancers, time is of the essence. In Sweden, many people assume they can access free genetic testing through the public health system, but the reality is quite different. Strict regional guidelines determine eligibility for genetic testing, and only a small percentage of people qualify. Moreover, with a limited number of facilities offering such tests and long waiting times, many people are left without the information they need to make informed decisions about their health. This is where Eiira Genetics services come in, offering a convenient and accessible alternative to public genetic testing in healthcare.

The Limitations of Public Healthcare Genetic Testing:

  1. Strict eligibility criteria: Regional guidelines limit genetic testing to only those who meet specific criteria, with less than 5% of individuals qualifying.
  2. Limited testing facilities: Only seven Swedish university hospitals offer genetic testing for hereditary cancers, leading to overburdened and understaffed facilities.
  3. Long waiting times: Most of those seeking genetic testing through the public healthcare system often face waiting times of 2 to 4 years, and many are ultimately turned away.

Understanding your hereditary cancer risk is crucial to making informed decisions about your health. Our genetic testing services offer a convenient and accessible alternative to the limitations of the public healthcare system in Sweden, allowing people to take control of their health and well-being. Don't wait years to discover your cancer risk - explore our genetic testing services today.
