How to use PFA Health Insurance

1. Contact your doctor

You always need to start by contacting your own doctor, who needs to assess your need for treatment and give you a referral or recommendation*.

This is necessary in order to ensure that you receive the correct treatment.

*A doctor’s referral is not required if you need treatment by a chiropractor, reflexologist or acupuncturist, or if you are in need of a psychologist in connection with stress symptoms.

2. Contact PFA at (+45) 70 24 50 01

Once you have seen your doctor, we will need to approve the examination and/or treatment that your doctor has recommended or referred you to. As a rule, you will get an approval immediately, and afterwards you will receive a letter either by post or in your e-Boks with a summary of what we have discussed on the phone – for instance who you need to call to book a treatment.

If you need to see a psychologist, the psychologist will contact you to set a time for the consultation – therefore in this case you will not receive a letter.

3. Get started with the examination and treatment

Generally, we will refer you to a treatment facility within PFA’s quality-assured network, and we will settle the payment directly with the treatment facility.

What does PFA Health Insurance cover?

The specifics of PFA Health Insurance vary depending on the agreement between your employer/organisation and PFA. If you log onto My PFA, you can see the details of your coverage.   

You can use the examination and treatment options etc. right from the day you become covered by the health insurance plan; however, the need for treatment must have occurred during the insurance period.

If you have registered for voluntary health insurance, please note that any pre-existing illnesses and illnesses that have arisen as a consequence of a pre-existing illness will not be covered until 6 months after the date of registration.
