If you are posted to work temporarily in Denmark for an employer in another EU country, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland or by yourself (if you are self-employed), you remain covered by the health insurance scheme of your home country.
In order to have access to public healthcare services during your stay in Denmark you will need a valid European Health Insurance Card and a PD A1 form issued by the health authorities in your home country. The PD A1 form confirms that you remain insured in your home country during your posting in Denmark.
A PD A1 form is issued for a maximum period of 24 months. If your posting in Denmark is longer, you our your employer may request an extension to the validity of your PD A1 form. This is subject to a mutual agreement between the authorities in your home country and Udbetaling Danmark.
The European Health Insurance Card entitles you to receive treatment which becomes necessary during your stay in Denmark i.e. treatment that cannot be postponed until you return to your home country. The benefits must be provided on the same terms and at the same costs as for Danish insured citizens.
