The Electronic Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is developed in accordance with international standards. It has your name, date of birth, postal address, health insurance number, the status of the insured person, gender and an ID photo.
On the back of the card, you will also find all this information. It has a middle white rectangle which has the contact information of your health insurer. In the top right, it shows the EU emblem of which country you have applied for your insurance.
After a successful application, you will receive the EHIC via post at your registered address in Germany. If you don’t have an address yet, you can get it sent to Expatrio’s office. Inform us with your German address after your arrival in Germany, then we will forward mails to you for free.
