With your European Health Insurance Card you can access state-provided healthcare if you fall ill or have an accident during your stay abroad. Show your card to a doctor or at the hospital and you will receive the necessary treatment under the same conditions as people insured in that country. As well, if you need a refill of your medication while abroad check the ePrescription services offered by epSOS.
