What Is An EHIC Card?
In the UK, healthcare is covered by the NHS and is free at the point of use. In other European countries, different healthcare rules mean you need insurance to cover your treatment. The NHS EHIC Card can cover some or all of your medical bills, depending on which country you visit. It is best to combine the free EHIC scheme with private health insurance. Whether you are renewing EHIC, have a lost EHIC card or simply need new EHIC insurance, our service is here to make the application process as simple and error-free as possible – and to give you 24 hour support when you need it.
