If you have a Danish residence permit and a civil registration (CPR) number, you are entitled to public health insurance in Denmark.

Health insurance card – your entitlement documentation

The health insurance card is your documentation that you are entitled to treatment and services under the public health insurance scheme. This card is often referred to as the “yellow” health insurance card.

You must bring your health insurance card with you when you need health services. The card carries your name, address, civil registration (CPR) number and the name, address and telephone number of your general practitioner.

In Denmark there are different points of entries to receiving health care.
