Where to get the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)
The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is a joint document for all European Union, European Economic Area countries and Switzerland Confederation that confirms the rights of citizens to receive state-funded emergency and necessary healthcare services to the same extent that it has secured the country's population.
The citizen of European Union, European Economic Area or the Swiss Confederation, who's staying in Latvia due employment or as self-employed person, need to add to his EHIC application a reference from employer. Reference must confirm that person is employed and the employer will inform the National Health Service about employment relationship termination within 5 working days of the employment relationship termination. More about EHIC on the web page www.vmnvd.gov.lv.
