If you need medical treatment during a temporary stay in an EU country, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland you need to present a valid European Health Insurance Card to the healthcare provider.
Who can get the European Health Insurance Card?
You are entitled to a European Health Insurance Card if you reside in Denmark, are a national of an EU country, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland and you are covered by the national health insurance in Denmark.
In addition, you may be entitled to a European Health Insurance Card if you are a stateless person, a recognised refugee or a family member of a Danish insured EU national or national of Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland. A family member is your spouse/registered or cohabiting partner and children under the age of 18.
