Right to planned treatment abroad

You have a right to medical treatment in another EU country on the same terms and at the same cost as people living in that country.

However, some countries may restrict access to some types of healthcare - because demand for treatment is higher than their capacity to provide it. You can check with the National Contact Point for the country where you want to be treated, to see what restrictions apply there, if any.

You may also in principle be entitled to get some or all of your costs covered. Check expenses and reimbursements for details.
