EU directive route

The EU directive provides a route for you to get healthcare in Europe, which could be refunded by your state healthcare insurance system. If you’re eligible for treatment in your country, you may entitle yourself to buy healthcare in a European Economic Area (EEA) country – but not Switzerland – and apply for reimbursement. The amount refunded will be up to the cost of equivalent treatment of your state health care insurance system – you may not get the full amount back.

Planned Healthcare abroad in the state system (The S2 route)

The S2 route may entitle you to state funding for planned state healthcare treatment in an EU country or Switzerland. In order to receive an S2 application, you will need to meet at least these eligibility criteria:

  • The requested treatment would normally be provided in your country to an individual in your circumstances.
  • The requested treatment is available under the treating country’s state healthcare scheme.
  • The country where you live is not able to provide treatment in medically justified time.
  • The requested treatment is not experimental or part of a drug trial.

If your application under the S2 route is approved, your treatment will be provided under the same conditions of care and payment that would apply to residents of the country you’ll be treated in.
