"Claiming a refund using your EHIC
Some countries expect you to pay your health bill when you are treated and then claim a refund afterwards using your EHIC. You should always try to apply for your refund before you travel home.
Remember to keep all receipts and any paperwork (make copies if necessary). You or your insurance company may need them if you're applying for a refund.
For details on how to claim a refund, see the information for the country you're visiting(external link opens in a new window / tab).
Some countries ask patients to pay a contribution towards the cost of their care, such as for prescription costs. This is known as a co-payment or ‘patient share’.
You can claim back the difference between the total bill and the ‘patient share’, however, the actual ‘patient share’ is non-refundable (since July 2014).
It's the responsibility of the foreign authority to decide the amount of the ‘patient share’ and therefore how much is refundable from the total bill.
