National health insurance
Denmark has an extensive public healthcare system that offers free consultation and treatment at a local doctor’s, emergency wards and public hospitals.
If you work legally in Denmark, you are covered by the Danish health insurance system. Most examinations and treatments are free, but you need to register and get a health insurance card.
Children are covered by the health insurance scheme together with their mother or father until they reach the age of 15 and are insured independently of their parents.
