Source: Annual questionnaire to Member States, 2011; Population figures: Eurostat, data from 2011

The European Health Insurance Card continues to make it easier for people in 31 European countries (the EU’s 27 Member States, plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland) to access healthcare services during temporary visits abroad. A patient in possession of the card is entitled to the same access to public sector healthcare in case of illness or an accident (e.g. a doctor, a pharmacy, a hospital or a health care centre) as the nationals of the country he or she is visiting.

Currently over 188 million people in Europe have the European Health Insurance Card (or a replacement certificate) according to the most recent figures provided by countries participating in the scheme. This is over 37% of the total EU population.

It is up to national authorities of EU countries to ensure that people are aware of the existence of the Card, that it is easily available and that the Card can be used by visitors to their country to gain access to urgent healthcare. The Commission continues to work with EU Member States to fully implement the system and contribute to EU citizens' awareness of the benefits of EHIC.

Comments on the table:

  • Denmark, Germany and Switzerland have not provided data on PRCs since 2008; no estimation has been made for the number of PRCs issued.

  • It appears that, in Switzerland, some citizens used more than one EHIC. No comment on this was provided by the national authorities.

  • Sweden did not provide the number of EHICs in circulation for 2011, so the table reports data from 2010. Data from 2009 was used for Cyprus and Germany and data from 2008 for Estonia for the same reason.

  • Germany has not provided the number of EHICs issued since 2008 – it is reported as 0 in the table. Data from 2009 was used for Italy and from 2010 for Sweden.
