- You have public health insurance in another EU country, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland - and can show a valid European Health Insurance Card (or, alternatively, a Provisional Replacement Certificate for the card)
- You reside and have health insurance in one of the Nordic countries (Sweden, Norway, Finland or Iceland)
- You reside in the Faroe Islands or Greenland – however, you may be charged for continuous hospital treatment
- You can prove that you are under 18 at the time of treatment.If you are unsure as to whether you have to pay for treatment, you can receive guidance on you rights and options from the regional patient advisers.
