Policy responses for Denmark

4.2 Entitlement and coverage

All legal residents and foreign visitors are entitled to health care including COVID-19 related care. No specific measures have been taken to ensure access to testing and care for undocumented immigrants. Recommendations regarding prevention to the public have been translated to hearing impaired and to several foreign languages by the national health authorities and to more languages by one of the immigrant health clinics in order to enhance communication to groups in Denmark without sufficient Danish language skills. No-one pays out-of-pocket for COVID-19 care (testing, treatment, transport, etc.), however, the situation for non-documented immigrants is unclear.
