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.

To do this, simply pick up an application form from any Main Post Office or you can apply online. www.gov.uk & www.nhs.uk/ehic

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.
