European Health Insurance Cards
Following changes in the law which came in to effect on 31st December 2005 the
E111 form is no longer valid.
The new document comes in a credit card format and issued on an individual, as
opposed to a family, basis.
In order to obtain a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) an application form
(CM1) must be completed. This form is available from a Post Office or can be
downloaded through the following link –
www.dh.gov.uk/PolicyAndGuidance/HealthAdviceForTravellers/Latest Health Updates
Downloaded forms will need to be completed in black ink and taken to the Post
Office for approval. If you are applying for more than six dependants you will need
to print off another CM1 form and fill their details in on that form.
The EHIC entitles a UK resident to any medical treatment* which becomes necessary,
free or at reduced costs when temporarily visiting most European Union (EU)
* The EHIC does not cover skiers for such things as mountain rescue, air ambulances
