E-003133/2017(ASW)
Answer given by Ms Thyssen on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-003133/2017

Any person insured or covered by a public social security system in any Member State of the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland is entitled to the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), as well as their family members.

EU citizenship or residence does not necessarily entitle a person to an EHIC. What is relevant is whether that person is insured or covered by a public social security system as mentioned above.
