"LO:s slutreplik about private health insurance and profits in welfare"
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"SLUTREPLIK. LO sees private health insurance as an ingredient in a giftcocktail that threatens the welfare. Insurance claims on the contrary that the insurance relieves the taxpayer-funded health care and fill out time of private providers."
"How can there be spare capacity in the same time there are queues in health care? The argument sounds like a särintresses backdrop to hide the fact that publicly-funded patients have longer waiting times when healthcare providers prioritise privately-financed patients of lönsamhetsskäl. "
"Instead of the Swedish Insurance smoke screens, we recommend everyone to read their rapportbilaga ”Who have private health insurance in Sweden?”. It shows that among college-educated men has 22 percent of the insurance while 12 per cent of women graduates and only six per cent of women with two-year upper secondary school has it. "
"The substantial growth of private health insurance between 2006 and 2015 have mainly gone to the tenth with the highest incomes. Which increases the rate by almost 20 percentage points, from 17.3 to 36.9. It gives a clear picture of one's well being, and a society being pulled apart. "
"Private health insurance creates shortcuts to health care for those who can afford it. They undermine confidence in the publicly funded health care. They also undermine the willingness of citizens to jointly and severally fund the health care needs via a tax. "
"voters who no longer rely on welfare, vote for parties who promise lower taxes with the expectation that they will get to afford to buy their care privately. The development leads us to a society where large groups are excluded from health care because they cannot afford the insurance. "
"When we take a common responsibility for the welfare is the entire population and parts of the risks. Then we can afford to provide all health care needs. LO wants everyone to get welfare according to need, not to those who can pay extra will get to go before. Therefore, both the private paid shortcuts and vinstjakt in the welfare to be stopped."
