Can I get for reimbursement for chiropody treatment?
If you are referred to the chiropodist by your GP (doctor) and your chiropodist is state-registered, the National Health Insurance will pay part of your expenses.
If you are to receive a subsidy for payment of chiropody you have to suffer from one of the following illnesses:
- Ingrown nails
- Scar tissue after radiotherapy
- Severe arthritis.
If you choose a non-state-registered chiropodist, you are not eligible for a subsidy.
The subsidy from the National Health Insurance is automatically deducted from your chiropodist bill.
If you have a private health insurance with ”Sygesikringen danmark”, you must inform the chiropodist, who will make a digital report to ”Sygesikringen danmark”.
If you are a pensioner, you may apply for additional subsidies subject to the rules on health payments or personal payments.
