Access to healthcare
Changes are coming on 1 January!
On 30 December 2020, the EU and UK signed a trade and cooperation agreement which will determine the rules that apply from 1 January 2021 to relations between the EU and the UK in a number of areas.
Since 1 January 2021, although an agreement has been reached, major changes must be taken into consideration.
British non-residents who travel to France after 31 December 2020 will no longer benefit from the facilities linked to the coordination of European social security systems. Their European Health Insurance Card will no longer be recognised after they expire.
You are concerned 1) if you are a British citizen who wishes to travel to France; 2) if you wish to know if you can benefit from medically necessary healthcare when you travel to France; 3) if you wish to know if you can benefit from planned medical treatment in a specialised establishment in France.
