Medical Assistance

Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information on the list is provided directly by the local service providers; the Department is not in a position to vouch for such information.

Danish citizens and permanent residents of Denmark qualify for free hospitalization and medical treatment under the Danish National Health Service.  However, medical treatment and hospital care, covered by the Danish National Health Service, may require referral from a general practitioner.

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.

In case of emergency and serious injury- ambulance – fire – police – dial 112

General Practitioners and Health facilities

The Embassy assumes no responsibility for the professional ability or integrity of the persons whose names appear on this list.

American tourists are reminded that medical services cannot be provided free of charge, as the Danish National Health Service does not cover visitors to Denmark. It is therefore recommended to obtain an estimate of the cost involved before receiving any services. It is also important to telephone the doctor’s office for an appointment.
