A new briefing from the Brexit Health Alliance (BHA) highlights the key agreements needed to protect patients in the UK`s future relationship with the EU from 1 January 2021. In the absence of agreements, according to the BHA, adaptation will be important for the NHS and more broadly for the health sector and will affect the health and well-being of patients and citizens. In addition, no new British pensioner will be able to settle in Spain, etc., (with the right to a public pension in the UK) and will not be entitled to free health care. Finally, British citizens who cannot receive the treatment they need in the NHS will not be able to make the necessary arrangements to get the NHS to send them to an EU Member State to receive this treatment where it is available. According to a call from the Guardian, British citizens living in the EU remain confused and concerned about their health care and post-Brexit pensions, although both issues have been satisfactorily resolved in the withdrawal agreement. Their rights are guaranteed by the UK-EU withdrawal agreement, which has been incorporated into UK law. I am a citizen of the United Kingdom and, as a tourist, would like to travel to Spain at a later date when I leave the UK. Am I entitled to health care in Spain? What document do I need to submit? No, you don`t have to do anything. If you hold an H1 form on 31 December 2020, the UK will continue to fund your health care and in-kind benefits in the event of care after the end of the transitional period. Pensions and other benefits can be exported. This applies as long as you continue to live in Germany and are covered by the provisions of the withdrawal agreement. The government`s website states that you must purchase health-protected travel insurance before going on holiday. He warns that it is « particularly important » to get the right coverage if you have a pre-existing condition.
Eu reciprocal health care rules work in such a way that the UK reimburses EU Member States for the health care costs they make available to UK citizens within the scope of these regulations (pensioners, visitors, etc., see above). Health cards issued before the withdrawal date remain valid and are fully effective for maintaining health care in Spain. Currently, Brexit – the UK`s exit from the European Union (EU) on 1 February 2020 – will not lead to a change in health care for citizens or businesses. These are the provisions of the withdrawal agreement. If no contract is concluded, it will prejudge all those who would have fallen with the EU border health system if the UK had remained in the EU (see above). In addition, there will be no CEV card system for British tourists on holiday that gives access to free emergency services. There are more than 27 million fic cards issued in the UK, so the loss of such a system will be highly noticeable. Travel insurance would not be a substitute. Such insurance often complements access to public health care. I am a citizen of the UK and am studying a phD/Master/ERASMUS scholarship in Spain. Do I have the right to health care? The United Kingdom has similar agreements with the EEA-EFTA states (Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) and Switzerland.
You can read: I am a British national and my company is based in the UK, but is temporarily sending me to Spain. Do I have the right to health care in Spain? The Directorate General of Professional Regulation is responsible for the recognition of foreign diplomas for activity in the health professions when the Ministry of Education and Training and the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities are not competent.
