We are neither affiliated with nor part of the NHS. We can submit an EHIC application on your behalf and we charge a service fee of £49 for our service. We cannot grant you an EHIC ourselves. This decision rests solely with the NHS. The EHIC card can be obtained from the NHS without our checking service in which case there will be no submission or checking fee payable.
Applying for an EHIC is free of charge via the NHS.
You can apply through the NHSBSA website here . It is also possible to apply by phoning the automated service on: 0845 606 2030
Another way to apply is to download an application form (PDF, 122kb) and return it to the NHS Business Services Authority, which processes all applications.
