Dear Mr Lacey,

 

Thank you for your correspondence of 13 March requesting advice on how
many UK
citizens living within the other 27 member states are treated by their
host
country under a reciprocal agreement and the cost is eventually paid for
by the
UK under the S type forms.  I have been
asked to reply.

 

EU rules set out the framework for determining which European
Economic Area (EEA) country is ‘responsible’ for an individual under EU
law.
This is commonly referred to as ‘insurability’; healthcare entitlements
under
EU Regulations are sometimes linked to those of wider social security
benefits.
 If a benefit or pension is exportable to
another EU/EEA country or Switzerland, healthcare entitlement (through the
S1
route) automatically follows. Therefore, it is not the case that the UK
covers
the cost of healthcare for UK citizens only, but for anyone who is insured
by
the UK.

 1. UK

 2. The
UK has an agreement with Gibraltar to cover their reciprocal
arrangement
liabilities that fall under EU rules

 3. The
UK has an agreement with Ireland that excludes the need to exchange S1
forms

I hope this reply is helpful.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Jane Spencer
