Free Health Insurance Card (EHIC)
FREE HEALTH INSURANCE CARD (EHIC)
If you’re visiting a European Union (EU) country, you can apply for a free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) & take it with you when you travel.
Please note: The EHIC is in addition to Travel Insurance & not instead of it!
WHAT IS AN EHIC?
An EHIC is a free health insurance card that lets you get state healthcare in other EEA countries & Switzerland at a reduced cost or sometimes for free.
There will be no change to the rights & status of EU citizens currently living in the UK until 30 June 2021 or 31 December 2020 if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.
