Medicines and medical devices
When buying medicine on prescription abroad using your EHIC, you will pay the same rate at the pharmacy as someone who was insured and living in that country. Without an EHIC, you most likely have to pay the full cost up front, even if you don't at home. If you are entitled to reimbursement you can claim it from your statutory health insurance service when you get home.
