As an aside to the EHIC card, we applied to renew our Carte de Sejours over a year ago. Starting at our Mairie and passed onto our Sous Prefecture.
This dies a death and all communications stopped. So we duly applied on the online application in Brittany and actually got replies and reference numbers.

Reading all the latest blurb where Brits in France are encouraged to apply online via the Amelia site but I keep reading it's not necessary if you have already applied and someone will be in touch 'later'.
But later has arrived and no further communications have been received. So do I apply again or sit and wait?

Of course what the EHIC entitles people to is not full health care in another country, merely emergency or urgent treatment.

My reading is that those of retirement age with residency in an EU country and who currently have health care in that country courtesy of S1 the UK will issue an EHIC which will remain valid after 1st Jan.


Dave

That is correct, but I had presumed that since I am now covered under the Polish Health system that when I needed anew cardit would be issued in Poland, so was surprised to find it is being issued from UK.

As we are in the French system under the S1 pensioners and have a Carte Vitale we assumed the EHIC card would be valid in any other EU country except France.

My existing card is valid to 2025, but from this morning's phone call I established that this will only be valid till 31sr Dec and I must apply for the new card - I don't know what the difference is.

Your card may be the old one like mine, so you may need to apply for new card(s). I did it on-line and one only needs name, DoB, address etc., not even N.I. number. I got e-mail confirming issue in minutes.

OK and thanks Geoff.
Belt and braces I had better check. Do you have a link to that site Geoff as I access the Gov one and it asks for everything?
It's OK Geoff as I have applied and confirmed it's on it's way.

As I'm sure you are aware, previously (before the b word fiasco) although in the French system of health care the UK issued the EHIC for us.
Have you actually received your card from them yet?

@bilbaoman, have you actually got a replacement card from Newcastle?

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.
