A free card that gives you access to medically necessary, state-provided healthcare during a temporary stay in any of the 28 EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland, under the same conditions and at the same cost (free in some countries) as people insured in that country.
Cards are issued by your national health insurance provider.
Important – the European Health Insurance Card:
Please note: when you move your habitual residence to another country, you should register with the S1 form instead of using the EHIC to receive medical care in your new country of habitual residence.
The European Commission is putting the European Health Insurance Card mobile app offline as a result of the end of roaming charges in the EU.
All the information is available on this website under How to use the card. This information is updated every year in 23 EU languages and its display on mobile devices has been improved for a better online experience.
