Going abroad for medical treatment?

If you’re considering or have received medical treatment in another EU, EFTA or UK country, it’s crucial to understand how the process works and the potential risks involved.

Not following the correct procedures may result in having to cover the full costs of your treatment. Various funding options are available, depending on the country you reside in, the country where you plan to receive treatment, and the specific clinic or hospital.

Our healthcare abroad claims form makes accessing medical treatment abroad more convenient.

Emergency treatment abroad with European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)

Emergency treatment abroad with the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) provides you with access to medically necessary, state-provided healthcare during a temporary stay in any of the 27 EU countries, as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland. This access is granted under the same conditions and at the same cost, which can even be free in some countries, as it is for people insured in the country of your stay.

EU directive route

The EU directive provides a pathway for you to access healthcare in Europe, which may be eligible for reimbursement through your state healthcare insurance system. If you qualify for treatment in your home country, you have the option to seek healthcare in a European Economic Area (EEA) country (excluding Switzerland) and then apply for reimbursement. It’s important to note that the refunded amount will be equivalent to the cost of treatment under your state healthcare insurance system, but you may not receive a full refund.

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.
