IKA - the Greek national Social Insurance Institution no longer informs insured persons about the annual renewal of their Ατομικό Βιβλάριο Υγείας Atomiko Bibliario Ygeias (personal health booklet).
From 2015, renewal can be done through the local Kentro Exypiretisis Politon (KEP - Citizen Service Center), or online by Internet.
The online method is only available for the Greek IKA Booklet. For Health Booklets from abroad, you need to contact your local IKA office.
For renewing the Greek IKA Booklet, click on https://apps.ika.gr/eAccess/login.xhtml and complete the following form:
• Αριθμός Μητρώου Ασφαλισμένου (Α.Μ.Α.) (A.M.A. - IKA book number)
