The E-111 is dead, long live the E-111

Just to clarify for folks ... the old E-111 form has been replaced by the new European Health Insurance Card. Since Jan 2006 the E-111 is invalid, and you need to get one of these cards, which look like this:

I think this is actually easier to deal with, but, now that there's a better system in place, it would appear that the hospitals are insisting on folks having these cards.
