Private Health Insurance vs. European Health Insurance Card

by MediHelp | Stay healthy | 2014

If you ever wondered about the differences between a Private Health Insurance and the European Health Insurance Card, here is a guide that will help you get a clear understanding of what differentiates the two products!

The European Insurance Card has specific benefits for those who have to deal with an unexpected health issue during a temporary stay abroad. However, it has no use for people who want to be able to permanently access medical services outside their country of residence. For this purpose, a Private Health Insurance Plan is the appropriate product. The insured person can access medical services for any medical issue in Europe or anywhere in the world, with coverage of over 1 million Euros per year/ member.

We want to help you better understand the differences between these two very distinct products, so here is a list of the most important things to be taken into consideration!
