The government medical institutions are administered by the Ministry of Health through the Department of Medical and Public Health Services and are financed by general taxation through the budget.

European Health Insurance Card
European Health Insurance Card
Launched in June 2004, the EHIC or "Health Card" enables holders to access medical resources when travelling outside of their EU country of residence.
European residents who are covered by a social security scheme in their country of residence are entitled to a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). The card simplifies the procedure when receiving unforeseen medical assistance during their visit to a member state. It should be carried when travelling within the European Economic Area, (i.e. the European Union, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) and Switzerland. Each person travelling should have their own card.
The EHIC entitles the holder to the same treatment at the same cost as a national of that country. For example, if medical care is provided free of charge in the member state where treatment is required, the claimant will be entitled to free medical care on presentation of the card or an equivalent document.
Presentation of the EHIC guarantees reimbursement of the medical costs on the spot, or soon after returning home.
The card is only valid for state provided services and not private hospitals or treatments.
Residents of new member countries may not be able to use their EHIC card in certain Switzerland. It is suggested to verify with the social security administration in the country of residence prior to travel.
* For general information from the EU about the EHIC: http://ec.europa.eu/social/main.jsp?catId=559&langId=en
Note: Third-country nationals (from outside the EU/EEA) resident in the EU and holding an EHIC cannot use their EHIC in Norway, Liechtenstein or Switzerland. In Iceland, non EU/EEA nationals are only covered for emergency treatment. Holders of an EHIC in Denmark will only be eligible for free treatment in a public hospital in the event of:
* a sudden illness
* an unexpected aggravation of a chronic condition
* an emergency
EU citizens receiving pensions from their home country
As of 1 May 2010, the responsibility of issuing the EHIC is no longer with a person's state of residence, but with the state where a person is paying to or benefiting from the Social Security System. This affects people receiving pensions from their EU home country rather than their country of residency. A resident of Cyprus, receiving pension in for example the UK, should now apply for the EHIC card in UK.
The only personal information on the EHIC is the card holder's surname and first name, personal identification number and date of birth. The European health insurance card does not contain medical data. The card contains the same information in all countries where it is issued.
The duration of validity of the card varies from country to country.
Replacement of E Forms
The European Health Insurance Card replaces forms previously used within the EU:
* E111 and E111B used by tourists
* E110 used by international road transporters
* 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
Note: The forms E111 (and others) have not been valid since 31 December 2005.
Getting an EHIC Card in Cyprus
The EHIC is issued by the applicant's country of residence: for example, a UK national who is legally resident in Cyprus must apply in Cyprus for their EHIC from the Cypriot government.
Cyprus residents can obtain an EHIC by submitting a completed application and supporting documents to the nearest hospital or the Ministry of Health. Cards are free of charge.

Charges differ from country to country. In some countries, treatment is provided at full cost with reimbursement for a percentage available later, while in others only the actual costs that would be incurred by a resident of that country are charged up front.
A European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) entitles you to reduced-cost, sometimes free, medical treatment that becomes necessary while you're in a European Economic Area (EEA) country or Switzerland.
The EEA consists of the European Union (EU) countries plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. Switzerland applies the EHIC arrangements through an agreement with the EU.
The EHIC is valid in:
Austria, Belgium, Cyprus (but not Northern Cyprus)
Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany
Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein
Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland
Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland
What does the EHIC cover?
The EHIC is normally valid for three to five years and covers any medical treatment that becomes necessary during your trip, because of either illness or an accident.
The card gives access to state-provided medical treatment only, and you'll be treated on the same basis as an 'insured' person living in the country you're visiting. Remember, this might not cover all the things you'd expect to get free of charge from the NHS in the UK. You may have to make a contribution to the cost of your care.
The EHIC also covers any treatment you need for a chronic disease or pre-existing illness. You need to make arrangements in advance for kidney dialysis and oxygen therapy. To arrange for kidney dialysis while you're away, contact your NHS renal unit in the UK before you travel. For limited information on oxygen supply services in the EEA countries and Switzerland, call the Department of Health's Customer Service Centre on 020 7210 4850.
Remember that the EHIC won't cover you if getting medical treatment is the main purpose of your trip. You are advised to take out comprehensive private insurance for visits to all countries, regardless of whether you are covered by your EHIC.
Your EHIC should cover you for routine maternity care while you are away. However, if you are going to an EEA country or Switzerland specifically to have your baby, you will need an E112 form - see the 'Non-emergency treatment section' for more information.
Applying for a European Health Insurance Card
You can apply for a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) online, by phone or by post.
You can apply for an EHIC for your spouse/partner and any children up to the age of 16 (or 19 if they are in full-time education) at the same time as applying for your own. If you are a foster parent or guardian (including boarding school teaching staff), you can apply on behalf of any children you are looking after. You must be over 16 to apply as a main applicant.
Regardless of how you apply, you will need to have the following information to hand for everyone you are applying for:
* Name and date of birth
* NHS or national insurance (NI) number.
In Scotland the NHS number is known as the Community Health Index (CHI) number and in Northern Ireland it is known as the Health and Care number.
The EHIC is issued by the Prescription Pricing Authority (PPA) and is free of charge.
