The Danish Medicines Agency authorises nutritional products eligible for reimbursement from the Regional Council.

Companies that want a product to be included on the Danish Medicines Agency’s lists of reimbursable nutritional products should send a fully completed application form and any relevant documentation as well as pay the charged fee to the Danish Medicines Agency.
