The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)

The E111 form is no longer valid. You will need a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) to receive necessary healthcare during a visit to an European Economic Area (EEA) country or Switzerland.

A European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) entitles you to reduced-cost, sometimes free, medical treatment that becomes necessary while you're in a European Economic Area (EEA) country or Switzerland.

The EEA consists of the European Union (EU) countries plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. Switzerland applies the EHIC arrangements through an agreement with the EU. The EHIC is valid in:

Austria
Belgium
Bulgaria
Cyprus (but not Northern Cyprus)
Czech Republic
Denmark
Estonia
Finland
France
Germany
Greece
Hungary
Iceland
Ireland
Italy
Latvia
Liechtenstein
Lithuania
Luxembourg
Malta

Netherlands
Norway
Poland
Portugal
Romania
Slovakia
Slovenia
Spain
Sweden
Switzerland

Important changes to healthcare cover in Europe:-

The EHIC has replaced the old E111. From 1 January 2006, E111s are no longer valid. The quickest and easiest way to get an EHIC is to apply online.

It's best to do these quite early in advance to when you are going to leave but it the past it has only taken a couple of days to come through the post if you forget and leave it to the week before you leave.

Do not rely on this rather than travel insurance.
Use it along with your insurance.
I clamrd back over £300 taxi fares, and my insurance paid for two extra seats on the home flight, when my OH broke her ankle on holiday.
I don't think the EHIC would do this for you.. You only get the hospital treatment.

Agreed but its a lot better than nothing at all which a lot of travellers have.

Quite right LOL.:thumbsup:
I would never travel without insurance. If you don't get it free with your bank account, it won't cost a fortune if you shop around.

Careful with this. A load of rubbish and waste of time IMHO. We nt to France last summer. Little girl fell over and cut her head. She needed stitches and the 5 days later stitches removed. Paid £120 for the treatment and medicines required. Called the helpline number (from France) and was advised to pay and then reclaim when I returned, with the receipts.
Then when filling the forms I noted that it was only possibly to get 70% back... Well that's better than nothing, so of I sent the forms.
1 month later, and I receive a letter informing me that it has been sent to France and will be dealt with when the information is returned.
1 further month later and a beauty of a cheque arrived for £7.69 Which would not even have covered my phonecall costs from France to their helpline. Waste of time, if I'd claimed on my holiday insurance I'd have seen more back.
Rubbish system, waste of time.

if you got an ehic card, my friend said you can take out this new thing called ehicplus which covers you for the stuff that the ehic card doesn't cover. it's the equivalent of insurance but cheaper i think. probably worth having a look. its not worth risking taking out the ehic/e111 by itself!
