EHIC stands for the European Health Insurance Card and is on offer from countries who are members of the European Economic Area, (EEA). Cover with this card will give you medical assistance throughout the European Union. For information on how to apply or renew your EHIC card, you can call the customer relations team on the EHIC Contact Number – 0843 515 9403.
The EHIC card was introduced to replace the old European Health Card, the E111. The benefits of having this card are that you will be able to get reduced cost or potentially free State health care in many European countries in case of a mishap abroad. This card will give you the cover needed to allow you to continue your stay until your planned return date and can cover you for existing conditions that may flare up while you are on holiday. The EHIC does cover maternity care, but not if you are travelling abroad to give birth. You can speak to a representative on the phone about the EHIC card on the EHIC Contact Number – 0843 515 9403..

Can I cover my entire family on one card or do they need to apply individually?
Each of your family members will have to apply for a card separately as there are no family EHIC cards in existence. For family members who do not have National Insurance numbers, please supply the customer service team with NHS details to proceed.
Exactly what is covered by the EHIC card?
Legislation varies from country-to-country. Some countries’ medical care is different to others but the general rule is that anything that you can access on the NHS should be accessible with an EHIC card. There are exceptions however and these do vary depending on where you are visiting. The EHIC customer service team is in possession of a guide to what each country offers and can be contacted using the number on this page in order to find out the specifics. Please note that EHIC is not a replacement for travel insurance and it is highly advisable that you continue to purchase adequate cover when travelling. EHIC also does not cover any planned medical procedures abroad, so you will have to cover the cost of such yourself. Find out more by calling the EHIC Contact Number – 0843 515 9403.
