In some cases, you may be asked to attach documentation when you complete the 'Information about health insurance country' form. This applies if you:
- have been posted from an EU/EEA country or Switzerland
- are to work in another EU/EEA country or Switzerland
- are receiving unemployment benefits from another EU/EEA country or Switzerland
- are a foreign student
- are a pensioner and only receive pension from another EU/EEA country or Switzerland
- are receiving benefits from another EU/EEA country or Switzerland due to, for example, parental leave, maternity/paternity leave, sickness or early retirement.
Which documentation is needed depends on your situation and can be:
- one of the European health insurance forms E 106, E 109, E 121, S072 or S1
- a valid European health insurance card
- a decision on social security/A1 form or a refusal of an A1 form.
You must complete and submit the information even if documentation is lacking
Scan or take a picture of the documents
It is recommended that you save the documentation as electronic files on your computer before you complete the form. You can, for example, scan the relevant documents to your computer or take a picture of them with your mobile phone and save them on your computer.
No need to submit everything
- If you have both a European health insurance card and a health insurance form, you only need to submit the form.
- If you have one of the health insurance forms, you do not need to submit a decision on social security/A1 form.
A1 form and European health insurance forms
The A1 form is a document that indicates by which country's social security system you are covered. If you have been posted by a foreign employer to work in Denmark, you must apply for an A1 form from the authorities in your country of residence. If you are working in several countries, you must submit your application to Udbetaling Danmark, International Social Sikring.
The European health insurance forms are issued by the health insurance authority in the country where you are covered by social security.
