Webinar Cross-border healthcare : what are the new opportunities?25 March 2021, online
Organized by the European Parliament, on 26 March 2021, from 8h30 to 10h, online
It will be an opportunity to discuss the issue of cross-border healthcare in the European Union and to reflect on the new opportunities about it, especially after the Covid-19 crisis. The European Union promotes patient mobility in Europe. In border areas, health cooperation helps fight against medical desertification, coordinate investments and pool equipment to streamline public spending.
The meeting will aim to make an inventory of the new opportunities for the cross-border healthcare and discuss brakes and blockages to patient mobility in Europe, notably about the 2011 directive, which facilitates access to care abroad and clarifies the procedures for reimbursement of costs incurred since 10 years.
