The Danish public health insurance scheme is a residence-based system. If you are living in Denmark and are registered in the Danish Civil Registration System, you are entitled to all public healthcare benefits. 

If you intend to stay for a period of more than three months you must apply for an EU residence document (six month if you move to Denmark from a Nordic country, or if you are an EU or Swiss citizen looking for a job) and you must notify the Citizens Service Center in your municipality of stay. 

When you enter Denmark from another EU-country, Norway, Liechtenstein, Iceland and Switzerland you must provide information about your current health insurance country.
