The public Danish health insurance
Public health insurance means first and foremost that you can be examined and treated by both medical practitioners and at the hospital free of charge. Unlike Sweden, you don't pay a patent fee to see the doctor. Health insurance also gives contributions to healthcare including dentistry, medicine, visits to a chiropractor, physical therapy and ambulance transport.
If you are a commuter who lives in Sweden and works in Denmark, you are covered by health insurance in both countries. However, the Danish health insurance does not cover you Swedish patient fees.
