|Can EU citizens seek medical treatment in all parts of the EU?
What is the process?
Recently, some friends have asked Xiao Ming how to seek medical treatment in EU countries.
Today, I will explain the medical treatment in EU for you.
Emergency medical insurance First of all, we should make it clear that, as EU citizens, if they fall ill during their temporary stay in another EU country, whether on vacation, business travel or studying abroad, they have the right to enjoy any medical treatment before returning home and the same right to medical care as their nationals.
Hold the European Medical Insurance Card (EHIC) to prove that you have access to health care in the European Union countries and apply for reimbursement according to the rules and rates of the country under the same conditions as the nationals of the country.
If you don't have a medical insurance card, or you can't use a medical insurance card (such as a private hospital that is not covered by the EHIC program), you still have the right to receive treatment, but you need to pay for the treatment, and apply to your health insurance company for reimbursement after returning home.
Application for European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) In some countries, the European Medical Insurance Card is issued with the National Medical Insurance CarD.You don't have to pay any fees.
You can get it free of charge from the health insurance company before you go abroad.
The health care and social security systems in EU countries are different.
You can learn about the health care system in your country from national health institutions, national contact points, or EPP of European health insurance.
Planned medical insurance In some cases, under EU law, you have the right to arrange medical treatment in other EU countries, such as consulting specialists, for surgery or treatment of specific diseases.
Before doing so, make sure you fully understand the scope of your rights and the procedures you need to follow.
