I have just noticed that my EHIC Card will expire shortly. You should check if your own Card is also due for renewal.
The European Health Insurance Card or EHIC allows an EU-resident individual to access public health care services when travelling abroad in Europe. The card is issued and administered by the HSE.
You can use it to access treatment if you become ill or have an accident while abroad. It is valid for temporary stays within the EU and EEA countries and in Switzerland.
The EHIC Card was introduced in June 2004, and replaced the old paper E111 forms.
I received my own EHIC Card shortly after it was launched, and I now see that it is due to expire this summer. At this stage of year it would be a good idea for you to check the EHIC Cards in your own household to see if they are shortly due for renewal.
If your EHIC Card is due to expire within the next 3 months, You can renew it online. To do so, you need your existing EHIC Card Number.
