When are you covered

 Most examinations and treatments are free, all you need is a health card.

If you are staying in Denmark temporarily and are not registered with the national registration office, you are entitled to free treatment by the public health service if you suddenly fall ill. However, you will only receive free treatment which enables you to travel home.

 

If you are covered by public health insurance in an EU country, Iceland, Norway or Liechtenstein, you are entitled to emergency treatment in the Danish public health care service.
