European Health Insurance Card
Anyone travelling in countries of the European Economic Area or Switzerland should – in good time before travelling – obtain a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). This can give you access to the national health services of some other countries, often under particular conditions - so check first. Remember to order your card through the NHS website rather than unofficial websites who will unnecessarily take money.
Health Insurance for People with Pre-Existing Medical Conditions
The EHIC is no substitute for private health insurance. The following companies are reported to offer travel insurance to people with pre-existing medical conditions. SarcoidosisUK has not been in contact with any of these companies. The list is provided for information only and does not constitute a recommendation.
