The European Health Insurance Card makes it easier for people from the European Union’s 27 Member States plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland to access health care services during temporary visits abroad. The card ensures that you will get the same access to public sector health care (e.g. a doctor a pharmacy, a hospital or a health care centre) as nationals of the country you are visiting. If you have to receive medical attention in a country that charges for health care, you will be reimbursed either immediately or after you go home to you your country. The idea is that you are given the car you need to allow you to continue with your stay. However it is important to note that the card does not cover your health care costs while being abroad if you are traveling in order to obtain treatment for an illness or injury that you had before traveling. Nor does the card cover you for private sector health care providers.
Please note that the card is available free of charge through your local health authority.
It is highly recommended that you identify the NFZ general practitioners First-aid Doctor closest
