Can I go to a doctor without a yellow health card?

If it is an emergency, most doctors in Copenhagen will see you even if you do not have a Danish health insurance card. You need to find a doctor nearest to you and call to make an appointment.

Does my child have the same doctor as me?

Most children have the same doctor as their mother. Children under the age of 15 living with their parents cannot choose their own doctor and are automatically assigned the same doctor as their parents.

If the mother and the father do not have the same doctor, the child will automatically be assigned the mother’s doctor.

When the child is 15, he/she will receive a letter saying that he/she can now choose to change doctors free of charge.
