Yellow health card

Your yellow health card (sundhedskort in Danish) entitles you to medical treatment in Denmark.
  • Yellow health card Denmark

The yellow health card shows your name and address, your CPR number and the name and address of your doctor. The card is proof that you can receive medical treatment in Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands. You also need the card to get a NemID.

You must bring the health card when you see your doctor and to municipal offices. You can also use it at libraries, for identification in post offices and stores and in many other situations. We recommend that you always carry your yellow health card with you.

How you get the card for the first time or get a new one depends on your situation.
