The Danish healthcare system

The Danish public health insurance scheme is a residence-based system. If you are living in Denmark and are registered in the Danish Civil Registration System, you are entitled to all public healthcare benefits. 

Tourists do not qualify for treatment under the Danish National Health Service, except in cases of emergency. If, however, the medical facility determines that the emergency occurred as a result of a pre-existing condition, the tourist must be prepared to pay for all services received.
