Health Insurance Card
European Health Insurance Card is usually valid in the European
Economic Area (EEA) which now includes Switzerland. However
it only covers medical treatment whilst you are away from
home. It will not cover emergency evacuation from the place
of injuries or emergency travel to a hospital, repatriation
or any additional expenses incurred whilst on holiday. In
Switzerland ambulances (including air ambulances) are privately
operated and are very expensive. A typical trip from Morgins
to Monthey hospital costs upwards of Sfr900 for an ambulance
and several thousand Swiss francs for a helicopter rescue.
more detailed information about the European Health Insurance
strongly recommend that you don't rely on the European Health
Insurance Card to pay for your medical treatment and that
you take adequate travel insurance to cover you against
not only medical costs but cancellation, loss of property
and public liability.
