Access to health care for refugees from Ukraine

When you have a residence permit and a place of residence in Denmark, you are entitled to free treatment in most of the healthcare system.

The Danish Health Authority focuses on refugees from Ukraine being offered the necessary health services when they arrive in Denmark. Ukrainian refugees' access to health care depends on their basis of residence.

Ukrainians who have a residence permit under the Special Act are entitled to all benefits of the Danish Health Care Act after obtaining a Danish civil registration number (CPR number).

It is then possible to have the yellow health card issued. The right to health benefits is granted on an equal footing with others residing in Denmark.
