If you are diagnosed with a critical illness, you will in many cases receive financial support through your insurance cover. The payout will be in the form of a lump sum and will be free of taxation. It is up to you how you spend the money – whether on treatments abroad or on making your life more pleasant during a difficult time.
You can see the critical illnesses currently covered by the insurance here.
The insurance cover also offers you a one-year membership of selected patient associations such as the Danish Cancer Society, the Danish Heart Foundation, The Danish Stroke Society and the Danish Multiple Sclerosis Society.
