How do you get to use an EHIC card if you live in Poland? We had to register as French residents when we moved here.
Glad the treatment was swift an efficient and hope the eye heals quickly.
If you are receiving a UK State Pension you will apply to UK for EHIC, if you are not receiving a UK State Pension and you are in the French Health System (Carte Vitale) then you apply to your local CPAM (Social Security). You can apply for both of these online and the UK EHIC will be sent to you in France. The system changed in May 2010.
The beauty of having a UK EHIC is that it lasts 5 years but the French one only lasts for 1 year so you have to reply every year.
