Will my travel insurance cover me for the healthcare currently under EHIC?

Travel insurance policies will cover emergency medical treatment costs as standard that could have been reclaimed through the EHIC, although some routine treatments would not be covered. Travel insurance policies will also continue to cover emergency medical expenses incurred in countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA - all EU countries, plus Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein). 

Be aware that there is a small number of policies in the market that state they will only provide cover if you have and use an EHIC.  Customers in this position should check their policy and contact their insurer.
