The European Health Insurance Card
This card ensures that you will get the same access to public sector health care (e.g. a doctor, a pharmacy, a hospital or a health care centre) as nationals of the country you are visiting. Sweden, Norway, Finland, Lithuania, Latvia & Estonia all accept this card for treatment in their respective public sector healthcare system. However, it is important to note that the card does not cover you for private sector health care providers. Neither does the card cover your health care costs while abroad if you are travelling in order to obtain treatment for an illness or injury that you had before travelling.
Applying for the card
