NETC@RDS eEHIC ID ': NETC@RDS service for the electronification of the European Health Insurance Card, Phase B Initial Deployment

The project will achieve initial deployment of the electronic version of the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), already successfully tested by NETC@RDS project phase A3 sponsored by the European Commission, DG INFSO e-TEN Programme. This Phase B initial deployment will extend the existing implementations and add new countries to enable (unplanned) health care access for European citizens who provide evidence of entitlement in any 305 service sites (566 service points) across the participating countries. This can be via an eye readable EHIC, or a national health insurance electronic card, or via certain National e-ID chip card issued by the responsible government authorities of the participating partners. An online verification provides assurance to support acceptance procedures for both health insurances and health care providers. Using the NETC@RDS application and an OCR or SCR, healthcare facility staff read administrative data from the EHIC or national health insurance card of a European citizen requiring (non-planned) healthcare. Eligibility is then verified within a few seconds by checking the administrative data via two NETC@RDS portals against the database of the relevant health insurance authority. The electronic data set is processed and used as a proof of entitlement and guarantee of cross-border reimbursement. A transaction ID is also logged on the servers. These can be accessed by staff from involved insurance and cross border clearing institutions for specific audit cases, e.g. to clarify inconsistencies. Phase B total cost will be 15,3 million euros out of 20,8 million euros as for ETIC (phase A+phase B). Phase B Community contribution will be 3,5 million euros.
