or, if like me, you are now registered in the local healthcare system (I am in the French system) I can apply for an EHIC card through that, it is valid throughout the EU and my healthcare in the U.K. is guaranteed as I am a British citizen so have unlimited access to all aspects of the UK system.

That arrived for MrsW in 10 days and was done through her Ameli page.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

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

Dave I wasn't aware of that, as soon as I read your post I accessed my (and my wifes) ameli account and attempted to apply however all I got was the message "Service momentanément indisponible. Veuillez réessayer plus tard ".
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?

I was unaware that there'd been any agreement on extending EHICs after the end of December.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

MrsW found the same repeatedly, but eventually it worked, the card was delivered 10 days later via the Post.

If you are registered in the local system, the U.K. is not involved, I think there has been some sort of agreement about some level of cover for expats, but do not have any details.

Yes, she has German as well, but the French system is unaware of that as there has, as yet, been no need to inform them.

The new EHIC card is only available to residents of EEA countries who are eligible and have received and applied for an S1 form.


The information I received from DHSS said one could apply for an EHIC card but did not say the old ones expired at 31st Dec 2020 so one must apply to have a new one for after that daye. Mine old one is valid till 2025 so I had not realised I needed the new one, till I phoned Newcastle this morning.

Yes, that's right, but if one, or even two, is/are depending on a UK issued EHIC card (applied for by contacting an office in Newcastle) to give them access to health care then it does seem that the UK just might be involved?

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.

We applied and got our UK EHIC cards last year and valid to 2024.
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.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com
