Health System

    • Here you will find some of the aspects of the health care system in Denmark
Health Insurance Country

When you move to Denmark as an EU citizen, you first of all have to inform Udbetaling Danmark about your health insurance country. They need to know if you will be covered by your former country during your stay in Denmark. You can read more about this procedure here.

Health Insurance in Vejle

As a resident of Denmark, public healthcare is provided free of charge to you, your spouse and children. However, you will need to pay for medicine and dental treatments.

When you register in Denmark, the Borgerservice (Citizen Service) will order a Danish health insurance card (the yellow card) for you. You will need to choose a doctor at that time. The doctor is your general practitioner (GP) and you will need to contact your GP if you are ill. You will need a referral from your doctor if you need to see a specialist, but dentists, eye specialists and ear, nose and throat specialists are an exception.

You have a free choice of GP, as long as the clinic is open to new patients. You can find out which GPs take in new patients here.

Here you can also see if they offer email consultations.

The yellow health insurance card is only valid in Denmark. You will need a separate EHIC health insurance card (the blue card) when traveling within the EU/EEA.
