Amendments to the Danish Health Act were introduced in 2018 that stated immigrant patients who have resided in Denmark for more than 3 years have to pay user fees for interpretation in health care. The aim of the study was to explore, how the use of interpreters was affected by the introduction of user fees for interpretation. Results showed a considerable decrease in interpretation services following the introduction of the fee. It is likely to assume that the reduced utilization of interpretation services is highly related to the fee. Further research is needed about the consequences of underutilization of interpretation services.
