How does Kry work?
We want to offer all patients equal access to high-quality care - regardless of who you are, where you live or what time of day it is. Our licensed doctors, psychologists and nurses can help you in the app 24/7 and at our clinics around the country.
How do I log in and out of the Kry app?
How to log in
- Download the Kry app to your mobile device from the App Store or Google Play.
- Click Sign in with BankID and confirm your identity with your Mobile BankID.
- You'll need to create an account the first time you use the app. You can do this by entering your phone number and email address and accepting the Terms of Service.
You can only use your BankID to use the app for yourself, or your child if they do not have Mobile BankID. If your child has Mobile BankID, they must use the app themselves.

- Click on the gear icon in the top left corner of the Kry app.
- Select Sign out at the bottom of the menu.
What does it mean to register at a clinic?
You can choose to register at a clinic, sometimes referred to as “att lista sig” in Swedish. This means you have a main healthcare centre that handles all your primary healthcare needs. It's free to register and you do not have to be registered anywhere.
You always have the right to seek care at any healthcare clinic in Sweden even if you're registered at a specific clinic. You should always seek care first at your registered clinic.
You can only be registered at one clinic. If you decide to register with Kry, you will automatically be deregistered from the clinic where you're registered. If you're currently in a queue to register at another clinic, you will lose your place in that queue.
You can change your clinic at any time. However, if a clinic has a full list, it will not register more patients. This means that you may have to join a queue if you want to change back to your old clinic.
Who are the doctors, psychologists and nurses that work at Kry?
Our team of licensed doctors, nurses and psychologists all have Swedish credentials and experience of working in physical primary care. Our doctors have at least 6 months of experience in physical primary care.
Many of our doctors are also specialists in paediatrics (children's health), emergency medicine, and otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat). All our medical staff follow the rules and standards of the health authorities.
What are your opening hours?
You can get help in the app 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
How is Kry different from the health advice and information service 1177?
At Kry, we offer an alternative to a physical doctor's appointment with our video call and chat services. We can also book you an appointment at one of our clinics if you have symptoms that need a physical examination.
The health advice and information service 1177 is staffed by nurses who can provide healthcare guidance but cannot prescribe further treatment.
When will I receive my invoice?
You’ll receive a digital invoice from our partner Billogram, up to 7 days after your appointment. The invoice will be sent to your email address and your Kry inbox.
We'll send you an SMS with a link to your invoice if you do not open the email within 7 days. If we cannot reach you by email or SMS, we'll post your invoice to your registered address.
Why did I receive an invoice from Billogram?
We use Billogram to create and send invoices for our healthcare services.
How can I pay my Billogram invoice?
You can pay your Billogram invoice by:
- direct bank transfer
- an OCR number, like a regular paper invoice.
Will the amount I pay into Kry be registered against my free card?
Yes, the amount you pay into Kry will be registered against your free card.
If you live in Stockholm County or Gotland, you can see your payments registered against high-cost protection at 1177.se under high-cost protection.
I’ve paid too much on an invoice. What happens now?
Sometimes, an incorrect amount may be paid.
This can happen:
- when you reach your free card (frikort) limit
- when an invoice has been paid for 2 times by mistake
If this happens, please contact our support team. They will ask you for your bank account details and send you a manual refund of the amount you are owed.
What happens if I don't pay my invoice on time?
Should your invoice be paid after the due date, reminder costs will be added. Then the invoice goes on to debt collection, and then debt collection costs are also added.
Is Kry digital service a suitable healthcare provider for all medical problems?
No, our digital service is not always a suitable healthcare provider if:
- You have a symptom / disorder that requires physical examination, some type of sampling or x-ray
- You are in need of drug-based medicine. These are not prescribed via Kry.
- You are in need of medicines containing pregabalin (Lyrica) or gabapentin (Neurontin)
- You want to start treatment that requires long-term and regular medical contact
- You are in need of a sick leave that may last for a long time. Kry cannot issue sick leaves longer than 14 days. The 14 days count from the first sick day, i.e. you have already been home for a week, Kry can maximally help you with 7 days sick leave.
For cases above we recommend you to book a time and visit a physical Healthcare clinic.
In case of emergency, call 112 and visit an emergency room.
We have Healthcare clinics in several places in Sweden. For more information about our Healthcare clinics, follow this link.
Can I use Kry abroad or in different Swedish locations?
Yes. As long as you have a BankID, a smartphone or tablet with good internet connection, a functioning camera, microphone and speaker, you can consult your doctor in Sweden via Kry from anywhere in the world.
Can I book a meeting on behalf of my child?
Yes. To book an appointment for your child, log in to the Kry-app by signing up with your own BankID. Select either drop-in or select a time that suits you. You will now get the question "for whom you want to book the time", choose "My Child".
Children who are 16 years old can identify themselves with BankID at Kry.
Children must be present during the appointment, just like any other appointment at a physical healthcare clinics.
