A little clarity at last?


In June, the UK Brexit Secretary David Davis announced that during negotiations surrounding the UK’s departure from the European Union, he will be asking that the arrangements for the European Health Insurance Card remain as they are for British citizens – ie, that they are treated as a resident of the country they are visiting would be. Furthermore, he announced that should this request not be granted, that the UK Government will foot the bill for British travellers being treated in Europe – the cost of which is currently estimated to be around £155 million a year.
