If you are registered in the local system, the U.K. is not involved, I think there has been some sort of agreement about some level of cover for expats, but do not have any details.
Yes, that's right, but if one, or even two, is/are depending on a UK issued EHIC card (applied for by contacting an office in Newcastle) to give them access to health care then it does seem that the UK just might be involved?
Of course what the EHIC entitles people to is not full health care in another country, merely emergency or urgent treatment.
My reading is that those of retirement age with residency in an EU country and who currently have health care in that country courtesy of S1 the UK will issue an EHIC which will remain valid after 1st Jan.
Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.
