In June 2016, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. Despite this decision, no plans have been announced to scrap the EHIC and the European Health Insurance Card scheme is still in place as it was prior to the referendum. On this basis, you can still receive an EHIC Card from the NHSBSA and it will still cover you in all countries which have state provided healthcare under the EHIC scheme. No changes have been made to the EHIC application process so you can still make an application on our site as per usual.
The notorious paper-based E111 went out of commission over a decade ago and has since been replaced by the more easily manageable European Health Insurance Card. Providing your EHIC is valid and up to date, you can use it to access state provided healthcare, throughout any country in the European Economic Area and Switzerland, at a reduced cost or in some cases free of charge. So if you are a UK resident planning on traveling abroad, it is advisable to carry an up to date valid EHIC Card. Your EHIC is valid for a maximum of five years and you can receive one by making an application through our website.
Our company is not affiliated, associated, networked or partnered with the NHSBSA or any other government body. If you do not want to apply through our website, you have the option of applying for an EHIC, free of all costs, by applying through the official Government website. This can be achieved easily by simply clicking the gov.uk web link located at the top of the web page.
Your EHIC card will be valid for 5 years.
