Reviews

Reviewer: Il Consiglio Nazionale dei Consumatori e degli Utenti (CNCU) [The National Council of Consumers and Users], Italy
Review: “The European Commission explains how to use the European Health Insurance Card through an app for smartphones. Anyone can download the app, which contains information about the card: who to contact to request it; how to use the phone numbers for emergency calls; what healthcare and expenses are covered by insurance; and the app explains the procedures for reimbursement.”

Reviewer: Cittadinanzattiva, Italy
Review: “Healthcare outside Italy could be a problem if you do not know the details of local laws and your rights as European citizens. To be informed of all matters related to healthcare within the EU today, get the free app called European Health Insurance Card, which was directly promoted by the Vice-President of the European Commission, Neelie Kroes.”
