Denmark: Medical tourism profile
Denmark’s healthcare system is first rate and the country is at the forefront of many healthcare initiatives including reducing the length of hospital stays and improving outpatient care.
Medical tourism numbers in
A few hundred to a few thousand is the best guestimate available. According to a 2018 EU report, the number of medical tourists (ONLY those under the EU Cross-Border Healthcare rules) for 2016 was 198.
Medical tourism numbers out
Denmark offers all residents free, tax-financed healthcare, so few Danes even need to consider medical tourism. But as it is the most enthusiastic supporter of cross-border treatment paid for by the state and numbers have rocketed.
