When can you Request the European Health Insurance Card from ADSE?

You may use this card to receive the necessary health care if you are travelling:

  • in a European Union country
  • in Iceland
  • in Liechtenstein
  • in Norway
  • in Switzerland.

This card allows you to, in case of emergency, receive health care abroad - that is, you do not need to return to your country to be treated.

With this card, the person is treated on the foreign country as a beneficiary of the social security system of that country. This means that the health care might not be free and may imply the payment of user charges or co-participations.
