The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) replaced the E111 on the 1st January 2006. The EHIC entitles you to free or reduced cost, state-provided medical treatment if you fall ill or have an accident while visiting countries in the European Economic Area, such as Iceland. Please note that an EHIC is not a substitute for comprehensive travel insurance.

The EHIC is free. In order to apply ensure you have the NHS or National Insurance Number, Surname/Family Name, Forenames and Date of Birth of each applicant.
