With easter just around the corner, many danes are also on the way on holiday, and although the blue health insurance card as a part years old, so it's not all automatically put it in your wallet or suitcase.
Forget the blue health insurance card, or have you simply not got it, it can be extremely expensive within the borders of the EU. A hospitalsregning in, for example, Spain can quickly run up the 200.00 dollars.
But an extra insurance in addition to the blue card may also be a good idea.
- When we danes travelling in the EU and bring the blue card, we will have the same opportunities for public assistance as the EU-citizen has in the country, in which we find ourselves. In many places it is enough help, but not as we know it from Denmark! It will often be a deductible associated with the bill - that is to say, have to pay part of the expense.

- unfortunately, I think that it is often a proven opt-out rather than an oversight. An opt-out because the travellers are not aware of or understand the consequence it may have, if you do not have insurance that covers one during the journey. There are unfortunately many who still believe that ‘man of course is helped by one or the other’, it makes one at home in Denmark, says Dan Kjølhede Laursen and gives an example:
- If you are staying far away from Denmark and outside the EU, will the traveler be left without help at all. There are no places you can call for advice about illness or injury without having to pay 'up front', nor can you get treatment by a doctor in a hospital or even be helped by paramedics without having to pay an 'entry fee' before being helped. The economic and health consequences will for many people be completely unpredictable and at worst can create a lifelong financial disaster.
