All citizens who are registered with a CPR number (civil registration number) in Denmark are entitled to free treatment in hospitals and at GPs (general practitioners).
This means you can go to the doctor and be hospitalised without having to pay any fees. You will, however, need to pay for medicine, dental treatments and certain special treatments such as physiotherapy.
You will need a yellow Health Card in order to receive services from the public health system.
You can order a new health card with the Citizen Service Centre (Kommunservice). The cost is 180 kr. You will receive the new card by post within 8-10 days.
If your old card is damaged or more than four years old, you can hand in your old card and the staff at Kommuneservice will order a new one free of charge. You can also forward your old card to Kommuneservice by mail.
