    Hi, my daughter has a EHIC that is in date but she has recently turned 16 and has a new adult passport, will the card still be valid?

    I was involved in an accident in France about a month ago; I was blue-lighted to a hospital and treated for a broken collarbone. I used my EHIC card and wasn't charged anything else at the time.

    I'm aware that foreign hospitals sometimes send invoices to foreign patients at home later on. I have an outstanding travel insurance claim to submit for other expenses, and am wondering how likely it is that I have yet to be sent a bill for medical expenses from France? Anyone know?

    I would have thought that they would have charged you at the time. I had 1 night in an Italian hospital 3 years ago. I wasn't charged when there and no further bill followed it.
