What are the European E-forms for healfcare?

  • E128 used by students and people working in a Member State other than their own,

  • E119 used by people registered as unemployed and seeking work in another Member State.

  • Every Member State is responsible for the distribution of the European Health Insurance Card to its citizens. However, the model of this card is identical and has the same technical specifications in all the Member States, which enables health care providers in every Member State to identify the card immediately.

    Every Member State is free to either integrate the technical specifications of the new card within its national card, or to distribute a separate card.
