EU Health Insurance Card - Don't go on holiday without it!

Article
The European health insurance card provides proof of European citizens' entitlement to health insurance. Today, more than 172 million citizens have the card in their pocket. It is free and facilitates access to medical treatment when travelling in another Member State, whether for a weekend trip, holidays, education, a training course or for business purposes. For more information about the card and how to obtain one in your country of residence, visit the EHIC dedicated website.
