Is there anything that my EHIC card doesn’t cover?

FAQs / Is there anything that my EHIC card doesn’t cover?

Non-EU nationals can’t use their EHIC card for medical treatment in Denmark. Croatian nationals cannot use their EHIC card in Switzerland. The card will not help you with rescue and repatriation – it can’t bring you back home free of charge if you fall seriously ill, or suffer an incapacitating accident while in another EU country. You will need separate insurance cover for this which we recommend. The EHIC card does not cover you for private health care or any costs related to planned treatment in another EU country.
