A personal health insurance card gives you the right to right to free medical treatment in Denmark.
You must arrange insurance for the first 7 weeks
Because it takes 6 weeks for you to get your personal health insurance card with your CPR number, you will need health insurance cover for the first 7 weeks after your arrival.
When you get your health insurance card you are covered
When you receive your personal health insurance card with a CPR number, you are automatically included in the Danish Health Insurance Scheme, which gives you the right to free medical treatment by general practitioners, and in hospitals.
Remember always to bring the card along when you see your doctor or your dentist. The name, address and phone number of your doctor will be printed on the card.
