The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)


The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) allows you to get state-provided healthcare in all European Economic 

Area (EEA) countries and Switzerland at a reduced cost or sometimes free of charge.

You can apply for the card free of charge on the official EHIC website (www.ehic.org.uk). Other unofficial websites 

may charge you if you apply through them.

The card is valid for up to five years. 

Even if you don't plan to travel in the near future, it's a good idea to get one.
