Millions of Britons will still have access to free healthcare across Europe after the Brexit transition period ends.

The 27 million people with a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) issued before the end of 2020 can still use it after January 1 until its expiry date. There will probably be a scramble of UK residents applying for EHICs before the new year as people try to ensure that they still have cover until a new system is set up.

In 2021, Britain will begin issuing a replacement to be called the UK Global Health Insurance Card.

This will allow state-provided medical treatment if people fall ill or have an accident in the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein while on holiday, similar to the EHIC.
