Applying for an EHIC card made simple and easy

The European Health Insurance Card has been in effect for over a decade now, it replaced the old E111 form back in 2006. Even though the United Kingdom voted to leave the EU on June 23rd 2016, the EHIC card scheme has continued to operate and is still in active, can be requested and will be provided by the NHSBSA EHIC department.

An EHIC card can be used in some of the countries listed as follows: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France including Martinique & Guadeloupe, Germany, Greece including the Greek Islands, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal including Madeira, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain including Balearic Islands & Canary Islands, Sweden, Switzerland, UK.

It is important to be aware that although the EHIC has its benefits, it should never be used as a replacement for private travel insurance. The two forms work very well in conjunction with one another. Essentially, owning an EHIC will entitle you to be treated in the same way as a citizen of the country you are visiting. Healthcare systems vary in different countries massively, so your entitlements will also vary depending on your destination.  In some countries those owning an EHIC will receive medical help at a greatly reduced cost or even free. Because of the variations within the healthcare systems it is always a good idea to have private medical insurance to make sure all eventualities are covered.

It is essential to research different insurance policies before you travel to get the best policy suited to you. For example, if you have a long-term or pre-existing health problem the EHIC alone can’t cover you should you need medical attention. As well, if you are travelling with the intent to receive medical care, you will not be covered. Many private insurance companies will demand you own a EHIC and won’t insure you without one.

Those planning to travel within the EEA (European Economic Area) may want to take out travel insurance. Seeking medical help abroad can be incredibly costly, and without insurance you could end up with massive upfront medical bills. Many tourists think they can risk it if they are careful whilst on holiday. But unfortunately, it doesn’t matter who we are, we cannot predict when an accident may occur or when we may become ill, the risk is simply not worth it.
