unstar this property answer text <p>On 19 March 2019 I laid a written statement (<a href="https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statement/Commons/2019-03-19/HCWS1429/" target="_blank">HCWS1429</a>) on the Department’s plans for the continuity of reciprocal healthcare arrangements in the event we exit the European Union without a deal.</p><p> </p><p>This statement sets out that subject to Parliament ratifying the Withdrawal Agreement, in a deal scenario current reciprocal healthcare rights will continue during the implementation period until 31 December 2020. The Withdrawal Agreement and European Free Trade Area (EFTA) Agreements also give longer-term reciprocal healthcare rights to those who are living in or previously worked in the other country on exit day. This will include access to healthcare through the European Health Insurance Card scheme.</p><p> </p><p>The reciprocal healthcare system requires reciprocity from the EU or individual Member States and cannot be protected unilaterally. That is why we have proposed to EU Member States and EFTA states that we should agree arrangements that maintain the existing healthcare arrangements in a ‘no deal’ scenario until 31 December 2020, with the aim of minimising disruption to United Kingdom nationals’ and EU and EFTA state citizens’ healthcare provision. This would mean that we will continue to pay healthcare costs for current or former UK residents for whom the UK has responsibility and who are living or working in or visiting the EU, and that EU and EFTA states can fund healthcare for their citizens in the UK. We are hopeful that we will reach such agreements.</p><p> </p><p>We have published guidance profiles at the following links:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/overseas-living-in-guides" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/overseas-living-in-guides</a></p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/healthcare-abroad/healthcare-when-travelling-abroad/travelling-in-the-european-economic-area-eea-and-switzerland/" target="_blank">https://www.nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/healthcare-abroad/healthcare-when-travelling-abroad/travelling-in-the-european-economic-area-eea-and-switzerland/</a></p><p> </p><p>We will update the guidance with further developments. Whenever travelling abroad, individuals are always responsible for ensuring they have travel insurance. It is already the case that we advise people to obtain comprehensive travel insurance when working, studying or travelling to the EU and the rest of the world. This will remain our advice in all circumstances.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The United Kingdom Government appreciates the importance of retaining reciprocal healthcare arrangements with the European Union and has been clear in the negotiations that it wants to protect the rights of UK citizens in the EU. Extensive work to prepare for a ‘no deal’ scenario, including contingency planning, has been under way for over two years and we are taking necessary steps to ensure the country continues to operate smoothly from the day we leave.</p><p> </p><p>Subject to the Withdrawal Agreement being agreed by Parliament, during the implementation period the current rules on reciprocal healthcare will continue until December 2020. The rights of UK nationals living in the EU, and who fall within the scope of the Withdrawal Agreement, will continue to be protected after December 2020, for as long as these individuals remain in scope of the Withdrawal Agreement. This includes state pensioners already benefiting from that cover.</p><p> </p><p>In the event that the UK exits the EU without a deal, EU citizens resident in the UK by 29 March 2019 will be able to stay and continue to access in country benefits and services, including healthcare, on broadly the same terms as now. This demonstrates the UK Government’s ongoing commitment to citizens and removes any ambiguity over their future. We are engaging with EU counterparts to urge them to make the same commitment to protect the rights of UK nationals in the EU.</p><p> </p><p>The reciprocal healthcare system requires reciprocity from the EU or individual Member States and cannot be protected unilaterally. The UK Government is seeking agreements with Member States, so that no individual, including retired UK citizen living in other EU Member States, will face sudden changes to their healthcare cover.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has published updated advice for UK persons resident in countries in the European Economic Area as well as for those wishing to travel to such countries with specific information on potential changes to access to reciprocal healthcare and precautions they may wish to take in the event of a ‘no deal’ scenario.</p><p> </p><p>General information is available on the GOV.UK website and country-specific advice can be found under the relevant sections of NHS.UK as well. This includes guidance for UK citizens living in European countries and suggestions on alternative arrangements they may wish to make, should existing arrangements such as the European Health Insurance Card scheme cease, which appears as a section under the profile of each individual country.</p><p> </p><p>The information provided on these pages will be updated in light of new developments and changing circumstances.</p>
