One thing to bear in mind. It takes six weeks before some new-comers can become eligible for public health insurance. If you need medical assistance in those first six weeks, you will need to bear the expenses yourself. If you require hospitalization however, it could be covered by the potential insurance provider.
The best known private health insurance is Health Insurance Denmark, which primarily subsidises dental treatment, purchase of glasses, chiropractor treatment and medical supplies. The subsidy amount depends on the coverage you choose. To become a member, you must have permanent residence in Denmark, meet a number of health requirements, and pay a membership fee.
In some cases, your employer will take out health insurance for employees.
